    Just had dinner I wanted to see if the chickens would enjoy the leftover corn on the cob. Not giving a lot, but wanted to see if this was ok in moderation? They are outside full time and get grit daily. Any input thanks!

    They'll love it. Tomorrow you can just pick up the cobs and compost them or whatever you normally do with them. Mine LOVE corn on the cob.

    Thanks! I just gave them the cob and they went NUTS! I have to tell you, these chickens are PICKY PICKY eaters. they don't like bread, veggies (except corn appearently), fruit, or much anything else so I am glad I tried this [​IMG] they also LOVE this BOSS I got today, so glad I tried these things I was beginning to think I didn't have chickens but I had aliens!

    I have a hen that tries to fly up to grab the cobs.

    [​IMG] My chickens love corn cobs! They pick & peck at them , especially those we humans have eaten from. They dig deep on the cob and get the tiny bits that we cannot reach.
