Help identifying plant

post #1 of 4

Does anyone recognize this plant?  It grew in my garden, assuming it was in my rabbit food mix.  Some type of grain, initially thought it was corn.  Wondering if I can feed it to my chickens or rabbit.  Thanks!!!

Could be a dwarf sorghum, or a variety of millet.  I agree with sorghum.  I grew some last year that was 9' tall.
