Cracked Corn

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I feed my RIR's organic and non GMO. I would like to get them some cracked corn to keep them worm for the Minnesota winter.  Does anyone have a supplier or suggestions for organic non gmo cracked corn?

I don't understand why you would look for an organic corn source and then process the life out of it by cracking it and letting the germ and oil dry out.  It seems much more healthful to me to feed organic whole grain corn.  The only benefit I see in feeding cracked corn is if your poultry is the size of a canary.  In fact Mother Nature equipped her hens with a marvelous built in milling device that does a great job cracking corn and grinding up the bones of small animals to bake chicken bread.  This device is called a gizzard.
