Autumn’s Vases: Gourds & Pumpkins

My chickens believe that my mums are for standing on and walking through, which is to be expected, but when I find the broken stems my feathered vandals have left behind, I can’t bring myself to throw them away.

A recent trip with my daughters to a local pumpkin farm provided the inspiration for giving a second life to the broken mums.

This Cinderella pumpkin variety is my flock’s favorite flavor.

Simply cut off the top of a gourd, scoop out the center, add water & fill with flowers.

Kate, my Speckled Sussex hen, always has to know what’s going on and whether there’s something edible to be had.

I need some help or rather advice on my roo Popcorn. He is 19 months old and has become very aggressive toward his 9 ladies and me in the past few weeks. I just don't understand what has made him this way.He started about 3 months ago and it has gooten so bad that this am I had to put him in his own pen. He is not a happy boy about this.
