Pumpkin: Food and Toy!
Courtesy of Cindy W.

It's easy to microwave a pumpkin for your feathered friend to enjoy! (This is for a 6" diameter pumpkin)

Cut a circle in the top just like you would do if you were going to clean out the pumpkin to carve, but DO NOT CLEAN OUT THE INSIDE. Carve your pumpkin replacing large pieces like eyes and mouths if possible.

Poke all over with a fork. Replace top.

Place in microwave and cook on high for 3 minutes. Test for doneness by pricking with a fork. Cook in 2 minute intervals if not done.

When tender, remove top, set aside for several hours to cool completely.

Spread out a tarp, put the pumpkin in the middle, then add bird. Stand back and laugh!!




The aftermath...


Happy Halloween!
