Chicken Pumpkin Carving

I love having chickens.  They provide eggs and amusement.  The all have personalities and are great to have around.  That being said, chickens are also a pest.  They love your flowers to death, they eat anything left out and will even contemplate jumping on the grill when you are cooking.

I went apple picking today.  The wind was starting to blow when I left.  When I returned my white pumpkin was on the ground and the chickens were happily "carving".

  1. I'm sorry for the loss of your pumpkin but I couldn't help but laugh. We have a flock of 38 chickens and, last year, I bought a beautiful pumpkin to put on the porch of our log cabin. It lasted all of 15 minutes before the hens spied it and made lunch out of it. Man, they love those pumpkins. This year, I am putting a baby gate across the stairs so that maybe, just maybe, I'll get to keep my pumpkin until Halloween. Happy Autumn :)
