Once upon a time there was a pumpkin and a little girl. The girl’s name was Georgia and she picked the ripe, ripe, orange pumpkin. After it was picked she noticed 1,000 more.
So she cooked pumpkin pies, pumpkin bread, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin ice cream and even pumpkin cat food. She then found two more pumpkins and carved jack-o-lanterns.
Then Georgia went for a long walk and found a hen. The hen’s feathers were so puffy she named her Fluffy. Fluffy was taking care of six chicks. They were Fluffy, Dunkling, Rosie, Rose, Feathers and Pinky and were growing every day.
Georgia went walking another day and found a rooster and named him Cocky-Doodle-Doo. He already had a hen named Goldie that was taking care of five chicks. The two hens liked each other and the chicks played all day.
The rooster watched over the chicks and took them back to their mommy whenever they got hurt.
Georgia then got an idea: She gave all the leftover pumpkin seeds to the chickens who liked them and they lived happily ever after.
