    I don't see why not....they love stuff like that! I think the seeds might be toxic in excess (not sure, cause I think they're a natural wormer....) but if cooked they'll be fine....

    Yes! Add some seeds back and buttermilk for a natural worming effect. [​IMG]

    Quote:Exactly what I was going to add MissP! As a matter of fact, I've cut a pie pumpkin in half and added some buttermilk to both sides, set it out and let the chickens have at it! They cleaned the whole thing out! Seeds, goo, buttermilk, and flesh! The only thing left was the shell. [​IMG]
