Each year I get the scratch 'n' dent pumpkins from my church's pumpkin patch to bring home and feed to my chickens. This year there were some new varieties delivered, some white, yellow-white and multi-colored. These all have pale-colored flesh and for some reason my chickens LOVE them best! I try to put out just enough so they'll finish the portion before nightfall. Often they'll leave some flesh on the orange pumpkins, but the pale-fleshed ones always get pecked down to the absolute rind. I met another lady at the pumpkin patch who also gets bumped pumpkins for her chickens and she said the same was true for her flock. I wonder why that is? Do chickens have much of a sense of taste? Or are they attracted to the color of these pumpkins? Which would seem odd, you'd think they'd prefer the dark orange-fleshed pumpkins.
