    a scratchable floor?

    "Dawkins found that what mattered most to chickens (what they would work hardest to obtain) was a nesting box or a scratchable floor."

    Can anybody tell me what "a scratchable floor" is?

    One that the chicken can scratch: it'd prefer a farmyard to a motorway or a tiled bathroom floor.
