so we were going to get a pumpkin today (early I know) and I was thinking that if we carved them I know the chickens would probably try to get into them. So I was wondering if its okay if the chickens got into the pumpkins? thanks

Pumpkin innards and seeds are good for everyone. I really can't think of an animal that can't eat them including some of the more exotics ones I've had. Rabbits, gerbils, hamsters, sugar gliders, degus, duprasi, guinea pigs, horses, dogs, cats, chickens, budgies.... Seriously everything can eat and often benefits from pumpkin. It even helps the digestive tract of carnivores. Some just may not eat it like cats and my horses were never real impressed with any type of squash.
