Winter Snacks

We had some small pumpkins that were going bad brought to us as a treat for the chickens. When we got out to pasture, they all came running!
The Delaware chickens in anticipation of treats
The guineas tagged along too!
They quickly ate the seeds from the pumpkins and then began devouring the inside meat.

We had to move a few pieces of the pumpkin, particularly in the pen with the most chickens. It turns out that with two roosters in a pen, there are divisions where some chickens go and some chickens stay. In order for everyone to have some pumpkin, we put a few chunks up by the hen house. This was also in the hopes that all of the chickens laying eggs at the time will have a chance to eat some pumpkin too!
