They were a bunch of happy pumpkins…

Until they started to get a bit soft and I decided they needed to relocate before they turned to mush and we had to scrape them off the porch.


Chickens like pumpkins!

Or maybe pumpkins like chicken?

I’m not sure?

Which is it?

I’m not sure, but the pumpkin is looking a bit nervous…

And a bit out numbered!

Aaack!! It’s sheep that like pumpkins!

 (Thanks to my oldest daughter for the fun pictures!)

    Hi, I’m Anne from Life on the Funny Farm (http://annesfunnyfarm.blogspot.com), and I’m visiting from Farmgirl Friday.

    What a great photo of the chicken with her head inside the pumpkin’s mouth!!! Love it. We always feed our pumpkins to our hens, too, and they really love them. Very healthy for them, as well. I’m also loving your family pictures. Beautiful! Don’t you just love large families? I have six.

    Anyway, thanks for posting this. I hope you can pop by my blog sometime to say hi…

  4. Great pictures! Found you on Farmgirl Friday:)

    Great pics! I didn’t even carve my pumpkin for Halloween — I’m tempted to carve a hole in it now and just set it out for my chickens.

  6. Our chickens, ducks and sheep just love pumpkins, squash, zucchini, etc. The pumpkins make the egg yolks an extra rich orange color. I’ve been eyeballing the neighbors pumpkins too. 😉

  10. Hi! I just found your blog through… a blog hop that I’ve since forgotten the name of. :p It was the one your blog was featured on with the gorgeous photo of the ram and the chickens. Anyway, I’m so glad I found your lovely blog! It is so pretty. Large family farm blogs are my all time favorite. 😉 I also saw MOMYS mentioned in the comments of your About page. I’m on MOMYS as well. 😉 Not a huge poster, but I get soo much encouragement there! I am expecting my 7th wee one. I look forward to reading more and enjoying all your awesome photos.

  11. Thanks for stopping by!
