Our chickens love pumpkin. When I'm done using our pumpkins for decoration, and when we're tired of pumpkin soup and pumpkin seeds, I give the remaining pumpkins to the chickens.
They start out like this, with just a few holes pecked here and there.
Once the flesh is exposed, the chickens get serious about eating.
...until this is all that's left.
Why eat scratch when you can have pumpkin??
