I have an acorn squash on the counter that needs to be eaten by someone or something. Would it be OK to slice it in half and offer it to my flock of 17 five week old pullets? Should I remove the seeds? I mix some grit in with their crumble as they get outside time now to forage in the grass. Should I offer the grit in it's own container, outside of the feed trough? I assume they would take what they need by instinct?
