I woke up early one early morning last week and got to see Po eating acorns under one of the big oak trees in the front field.
I watched her through my binoculars. Steve got this photo with his camera. Total adorableness.
I follow the Instagram accounts of a number of zoological parks and wildlife centers. This time of year everyone from big cats to hippos are getting pumpkins to either eat or play with (or both) so I got a pumpkin for Po.
Unfortunately for me, she must have decided that it was her midnight snack. (Porcupines move to several feeding areas during the course of the night.) I haven’t yet seen her there at dawn or dusk. But I know that she’s enjoying her Halloween treat! This is what the pumpkin looked like after the first night.
This after the second. What a talented carver!
I hope that your Halloween brings you equally delectable delights and enjoyment!

Bon appétit, Po! Happy memories of your ‘headless chicken’ photo from Hencam, Terry (which I still have on Pinterest)!
My idea to feed pumpkins to hens went viral. Now it’s accepted practice. You know where it started! 🙂
lots of happy hens say: thank you!
I see a book in your future! Po and the Halloween Pumpkin. You are a wonderful writer.
I’ve already got the rumblings of a book in me. Like your idea!
