    I tried to restrict my chickens on the amount of the apples they eat, but once they discovered the bounty of apples under the tree I just gave up and let them have em.

    My girls love both pumpkins and apples. I cut them in half and they devoured them.

    I give them the seeds and pulp whenever I cut up a squash and they love it. They also make very quick work of apple and pear cores. They are not spoiled enough to get whole apples.
