    Coons are stripping my corn off the stalks and eating a small portion or half the ear of corn, and i was wandering if it would be ok to feed the rest of the ear of corn to my chickens. Could they contract some disease or maybe rabies.

    I doubt it. We feed our chickens....everything. We grow sweetcorn and when the coons get to it we normally give it to the cows. But we give our chickens all of our table scraps and food that has gone bad. Chickens will even eat baby birds and baby rabbits. So I dont think it will hurt them.
