    It was the most fun to watch of all- I threw an ear out there, and after a minute of my hen thinking that I had set a trap for her, my brave Show Girl ran past, and began attacking it. That triggered the 'group feeding frenzy'.

    I love watching them ! They loved it and not one kernel was left when they were finished.

    We've done the same thing 2 nights in a row. OMGosh, they had such fun and like you said, not a scrap of corn left! My FIL who was visiting got the biggest kick out of watching them. [​IMG]

    And, it doesn't have to be cooked... my girls attack raw cobs too.

    My extremely citified father enjoyed tossing a leftover cob to the hens and watching them roll it around and peck at it
