Top comments MM Reporter MM Reporter1 year ago Whole corn vs cracked corn??? No difference except the hens might need a sand gravel source for breaking up the whole corn in their craw. Oh, and that's one of the reasons for grinding corn for chickens. Also, ground corn works better for mixing with other grains, etc... Reply 38 View all 22 replies Dragonheat13 Dragonheat131 week ago (edited) It's just like she said. The whole corn contains more oil than the cracked. It helps keep fowls warm in the winter. Our ducks are fed whole corn in the winter. unfortunately, our spoiled chickens won't eat the whole corn. The only way our chickens will eat corn is if it's still on the cob! We are guilty of giving our chickens noodles in the winter for a treat. During the summer, we give them the cutworms from the garden.

Same goes for slicing a vegetable. The key argument here is make sure the corn is NOT GMO! And yes, feed it whole if you are going to feed corn at all. Great videos Becky, BTW.

I was wasting money on cracked corn. Thanks Becky! MiF Reply Cify Cify1 week ago so i googled Laying mash... "it's a grain-based feed with ingredients such as bone, meat scrap and limestone" ... what ! ok ! i'm not giving my chickens laying mash. Reply noviceprepper53 noviceprepper531 week ago thanks Becky Reply Matthew Niedbala Matthew Niedbala3 weeks ago Cracked corn is just corn that's cracked. It looses oil but damn it's not useless. I guess that's important tho. Reply 1 Daniel Morse Daniel Morse3 weeks ago We also used to give them suet and some remains from the table. We got year long eggs also with the whole corn. Clean water 24/7. Reply 1 Krista Schlecht Krista Schlecht1 week ago I'm glad this works for you. But science has proven it's the light not the feed that allows them to produce eggs. They need that light in their eyes for egg production. Winter where we live there is hardly any light. So production goes down.

From what I've read unwashed eggs will last about a month out on the counter. If you refrigerate them they will last up to 6 months. Check out The Happy Chicken Coop. That's where I found my info.

I know there's so many GMO corns out there and it's not healthy. Reply View all 3 replies Linda Readman Linda Readman2 weeks ago Check out on Netflix. GMO, Consumed, Food Choices. Reply 1 farmr7 farmr72 weeks ago (edited) Linda - I will repeat. There are no peer reviewed scientific factual studies to support what you're saying. What you refer to is not science. And yes , I have a university degree in the science of agriculture with a major in animal science including poultry. And, our laying and meat flocks of chickens did well. Even in dark and cold winter in western Canada - the key is daylight and balanced rations. Read more Reply 1 Jt Bearclaw Jt Bearclaw2 weeks ago Awesome info Becky.
