    Canning a ton - I squeeze the seeds and some juice along with the skins. Needless to say there is a vat-o-juice/seeds. I know they love them, but how much would be too much as a treat? It is more liquid than solid due to the juice.

    I had exactly the same issue.....I dumped about half the liquid and have frozen the rest and will thaw for yummy winter time treats!

    i'd just give them half at a time...maybe less depending on how much you have versus how many chickens you have.
