    Hello, I'm towniechooks (Kirsty) and I'm new to BYC. We've recently got 3 hens and we're keen to learn as much as possible about raising them in the best way! Can't wait to read all your expert knowledge :)
    So far I've found my girls love watermelon and corn on cob, we're trying pumpkin today!

    Welcome to BYC, Kirsty. Glad you decided to join our flock. Your hens will love pumpkin. Every year when my granddaughter (pictured in my avatar) and I clean out the pumpkins just before Halloween, we through the innards and seeds to our hens and they go crazy over them. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. What kind of hens do you have?
