    "Great Stuff, Love It!"
    Pros - great source of heat in the winter, not very expensive
    Cons - None!
    i love the corn, i give it to my birds mostly in the winter because it is a great source of heat to keep the birds warm if you don't have a coop or hen house. It's great stuff, you should get it for your birds!

    "Broken Corn"
    Pros - Makes legs/feet more yellow for show birds
    Cons - Molds if not eaten on ground, candy for chickens
    Broken corn works well for my show birds that need bright yellow shanks/feet.

    Chickens love this treat, but if chickens don't eat all of it up off the ground it will mold. It isn't very good for them if they eat too much.

    I've always heard it called "cracked corn".

    Broken Corn with wheat and millet mix

    Pros: Good price and my chickens go crazy for it. I feed it to them in the cooler months. When it starts getting warmer again, I start feeding them other things as treats instead.

    Cons: It will mold in the container that you put it in unless you place it somewhere that no dampness or moisture can effect it.

    We started the girls on the broken corn and cracked wheat at the beginning of Fall in September. All the girls took very well to it and their egg production has increased to 5 eggs out of 8 layers to 7 out of 8 layers per day. The food is more filling because it does not break down so fast. And I read that it keeps them warmer. We do add an oyster shell to the mix for calcium.

    Errrr, broken corn isnt a replacement for a coop. Your chickens will still require somewhere safe and dry.
