I had four leftover pumpkins put them in the yard in the chickens didn’t seem very interested. So the goats devoured them. They loved them. But I’ve heard of chickens that do like them. A few years ago I gave the chickens I had some of the pumpkin guts I scraped out before carving and they seemed to like them but didn’t want much to do with the outer skin

Same, they'll eat it but I have to open it. The really young ones I have to scoop out some and let them eat from my hand before they'll trust the orange watermelon.:rolleyes:
My chickens love pumpkin as long as I bust it open for them. Apparently they don’t want to do any of the dirty work and make mom do it
