I searched this forum and google and haven't found the answer to this yet. Can chickens eat sugar cane, you know fresh cut from the field?

No, I don't believe they can. Sugarcane is very fibrous and the birds don't have any way to chew it even if you peeled it for them. It would take something like a goat or a cow with teeth and the ability to digest fibrous material to cope with sugarcane. Particularly ripe cane.
