Halloween is just around the corner and Trick or Treaters will be dressed to impress with their
costumes in hopes of getting some tasty holiday goodies.
Don’t forget to treat your feathered family members this Halloween by scaring up some spooktacular Halloween Jumbles. The base recipe is simple, and of course, you can customize
it based on what your chickens like and what you have on hand. It’s a fun activity
you can do with the whole family.
You will need:
1 cookie sheet covered in foil or waxed paper
½ to 1 cup of canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)
1 tsp. dried herbs (I used oregano)
2-3 slices white bread (cut into small pieces)
Step 1: Prepare cookie sheet by covering in foil or waxed paper.
Step 2: In a large bowl combine all ingredients. It’s easiest to use your hands.
Step 3: Take about a tablespoon full of the mixture and roll into a ball and drop on the cookie
sheet. Repeat the process until the bowl is empty (yields about 20 treats).
Step 4: Refrigerate for several hours or overnight to set.
