Is it practical for me to start cracking my own corn.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have 18 chickens and growing every couple months. I have access to lots of corn and am wondering if it's a good idea to start to crack my own corn. I have a lot of neighbors that might be interested in getting some.

Any help on this is greatly appreciated!
The key to a happy flock is to be there for them. You have to do your job so they can do theirs. Your coop layout is also important. It doesn't have to be fancy just functional.http://www.backyardchickens.com/a/just-a-chicken-coop Is an example of it.

If there's a business doing it than do it, I feed both cracked and whole corn, some nutrition can be lost in cracking, rolling is actually better.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.
