Does this look like a jack o’lantern to you? Where is the face? The eyes, the mouth, the triangle nose? IT’S NOT ANYWHERE BECAUSE THE CHICKENS ATE THE WHOLE THING. What kind of jack o’lantern is this? But wow, can they clean a pumpkin good.


I think somebody missed a meeting….

    :sun: I am amazed at how clean that pumpkin is!
    I am not sure about them missing a feeding maybe they just wanted a new food for a day!

    I love it. You think you rid yourself of a chewing problem when you get chickens. Not. I left a styrofoam cooler in the backyard once and they ate a big chunk out of the lid before I caught them. Now I don’t just leave things lying around the backyard. Mostly.

    A few years ago, my mom had carved pumpkin on her porch and a squirrel chewed a big hole where its face had been. So, she stretched some of that Halloween spider webbing across the hole and hung a big, plastic spider in the web. It looked really neat with the candle lit. The trick-or-treaters loved it.

    Looks like it would make an excellent planter. Stick a potted mum down in there and you’d have a centerpiece for the Thanksgiving table! Decorating by Chicken!

    I like it! Stick a big pillar candle in there and let the light shine forth.

    They were just preparing it for you! Now you just have to turn it around and carve it! Though you might need to put a hat on the back to cover that hole when your done! Or an axe lol!

    Btw pumpkin seeds are a great natural dewormer for chickens!

    My chickens are afraid of pumpkins so I don’t have to worry about them doing that! I put one in the run last year and they ran from it! :D That’s one cleaned out pumpkin! :lol:

    Boy those chickens did a number on your pumpkin! I like Tipsila’s idea for decorating it with a spider web and candle; that sounds cute! Now that they’ve cleaned it out, maybe they’ll start laying eggs in there!!

    I agree with commenter one, Nancy, that is a Scary(!) looking maw! I would walk around far from it. If you lose anyone, check down in that hole. Kittens beware! Then, again, I guess the chickens would rescue you. Chickens must be very brave to create that. The mood is dark… Halloween approaches.

    I really like it. It looks scary, and like a natural type of scary. Kind of like the headless horseman, this is the faceless jack o lantern

    Wow they sure cleaned that pumpkin out good. We don’t have chickens, but we have deer and elk that will nibble on our pumpkins. They don’t seem to *love* them like your chickens do!

    Can I borrow your chickens to clean out my future pumpkin before I carve it? :lol: I like one commentor’s idea of turning the cleaned out pumpkin around and carve it. I even like the other commentor’s idea of putting potted mums in there as a centerpiece for the table! I await to see what you do with the cleaned out pumpkin! :shimmy:

    I am thinking you are going to have pumpkins from poop springing up all over next year. Maybe they can poop in the garden for a few days?

    You could turn it around and carve the other side (if they didn’t eat that too) and have a nice big hole to set your candle inside!

    You could have planted the mums in it!

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
