    oh yeah they LOVE pumpkins! I bought some on clearance the other night just to feed to the chickens. Walmart had them for $0.25 each!

    Just split a big one in half for our two flocks and they are very busy right now.... On sale everywhere now so we picked up several to feed occasionally.

    Gave mine half a jack-o-lantern today and they have been busy with it all day! We have 13 in the flock and it has kept them busy all afternoon.

    I bought 3 at Walmart since they were on clearance. The chickens and ducks love them! The ducks especially seem to love the stringy bits. [​IMG]

    Mine don't seem to care for pumpkin very much. Our neighbor donated his jack-o-lantern. I busted it up a couple days ago and it doesn't look like they've touched it.
