Mine are lazy and don't want to work for it, so they won't peck the hard flesh, but do love the guts and seeds. Somebody on here mentioned in another thread (there have been others asking this same thing....) a smart way to make the hard flesh easier to eat. Put it in the freezer. After it thaws, the flesh will be soft and easy for them to eat.

I gave my chickens a pumpkin - carved off some of the hard outer skin so they could peck at it. They ate the whole thing. Stem, seeds, flesh, everything - there was not a scrap left after a few days. I just gave them another one today :) Makes the egg yolks bright orange too!
