Yes ofcourse. Any thread is just a piece of code which is run asynchronously. So whatever you are allowed to do in a normal program, you can do the same in the body of the thread also.
Infact, the main method itself is a thread and so any threads started by the main method is a classic example of one thread spawining another one.
Here is a small program I wrote to demonstrate this concept. Since the program is well documented, I will let you explore it. Note how the threads are created.
Thread1( Devil-1 ) --> Creates Thread2( Devil-2 )
Thread2( Devil-2 ) --> Creates Thread3( Devil-3 ) and so on till the room is full of Devils!!.... don't get scared

Hope this helps. Let me know if you still have any questions !!
Ajith

Oops!!.. Looks like me and deekasha were trying to answer your question in a non-synchronized manner. This is what happens by the way if you don't get a lock on the object first
Great code deekasha!!
