    I was cutting up a cantalope today and was wondering if it's ok to give it to my chickens in its raw form, I'm also wondering if it's ok to give them watermelon, squash and any other type seed from fruits or vegetables.

    n/p enjoy watching them go nuts over the seeds, cucumber ends are also in demand here as well. Haloween pumpkin bits go quick too.

    I always leave a little extra on the rind and then cut them into pieces and throw them in the run. Watermelon is the biggest hit at my house, especially when the hens are panting from our Kansas heat!!
