    Chickens love canned corn, I would rinse it first to remove some of the salt they add.

    In the summer I buy the salt free canned corn and freeze it in muffin pans. They love it on a hot day.

    Void where prohibited.
    My birds go ape after canned corn. It's probably their most favorite food.
    I enjoy sitting with them, and feeding a kernel at a time. It takes awhile, but feels therapeutic.

    I freeze it in big blocks and hang it from the roof of the coop as a toy and treat. They LOVE it. I also buy happy hen treats, the mealworm/corn mix. My black australorp wanted a treat so badly she tried:lol: to fly across the yard to get to me quicker. It was adorable. :lol:

    How nutritional is a banana?
    My chickens love crab legs, caviar, prime rib, fresh shucked oysters, mussels and champaign.

    It's fresh high in vitamins. Just asking about canned foods. I would never have thought to feed them canned food. I stick with fresh veggies n such. Just surprised. That's all
