the reason i ask is ive been deytrating pumpkin as i ran out of freezer room, but cutting the skins off even after cooking the pumpking is killing my hands. Can i slice and dry with skin on?

i plan on rehyrdating it and mixing with food

Mine eat the flesh and leave the skins when they are raw. I would think they would do the same for rehydrated. Even if they eat them I doubt it would harm them.

Mine get pumpkin skins, seeds, and strings when I bake with pumpkin, they LOVE it!! When its been cooked they love the skins, not sure if it was raw, but I am sure it can't really harm them.

My ds11's favorite thing is to take a pumpkin in the run with an old baseball bat. He beats the everlovin crap out of the pumpkin to give the girls a start then just gets out of the way! As above, they eat every last bit, except the stem. I tell ya, CSI couldn't find a trace of that pumpkin when they're done with it!
