Mine love them!droolin

Pumpkin seeds are a natural dewormer and full of vitamins too!thumbsup

DH is growing some for us and some extra just for the chickens this year!yippiechickie

You need to cut up/ chop the seed for the best benefits since they can't chew,.. we use the food processor,.. just a couple of pulses.

Yes, and they love squash and zucchini seeds too.  I don't do anything but pull out the seeds & pulp and watch them enjoy!

Though this should really be posted under "Feeding..."
