    Will squash give chickens the runs? My chickens have the runs and they've been getting squash from the garden.

    If they eat too much it can.

    Mine only eat the seeds in squash, they don't have much interest in the rest of the squash.

    Oh, mine are little piggies. They love their squash. I caught some chickens in the garden eating cucumbers yesterday too. I'm trying to keep their feed bill down, but I don't want to feed them stuff that will cause them problems.
