Thanksgiving dinner for my ducks!
Recipe: Cut the very top off of the pumpkin. Do not clean out the inside. Fill two thirds full of scratch mix. Bake for an hour or two till nearly done. The pumpkin creates enough juice while cooking to plump up the scratch and give it a good flavor. Add two pounds of green garden peas (frozen, in this case). Bake another half hour or so. Let cool. Cut the top off the pumpkin to the level of the food. Serve. My ducks love peas, so while the pumpkin looked strange to them they came for the peas. Then after a bit they discovered the pumpkin-y scratch. They loved that too.
After they were done I let the chickens have a go at it. They loved it as well! By the end of the second day, even the pumpkin was mostly gone.
