The 5 free pumpkins we got.
 They were just going to throw them away and they knew we would take them.  Pumpkin is very good to feed to chickens.  They love it and pumpkins are a natural wormer for chickens.

 My boys had fun taking a rubber mallet to the pumpkins to break them up for the chickens.
