Featured Stories on BackYard Chickens
Start with what's in season because that would be cheapest. That's pumpkins and squash in our area. I don't dehydrate them but I scoop out the seeds, dry them and grind them. I freeze the chunks of pumpkin in a big garbage bag. When I feed the frozen chunks, I sprinkle them with the ground seed (chicken feed when I run out) and the chickens just peck away.
