Sunflowers are only 10 to 15 percent protein and high in cholesterol. Popcorn is very nutritious way more than regular corn and has a lot of usable vitamins. Plus it is cheap in 50 pound bags factory direct.I'm pretty sure unpopped and popped won't be much different....corn isn't very high in protein at all...you'd be better off feeding sunflower seeds if protein is what you want.
Why would you want to pop it? Just feed it as is.
Popped or unpoppedLucky you. My flock LOVES popcorn!
