    I was given dried mini indian corn on the cobb for a christmas gift this year, and directions how to cook it. But I am wondering can I give it to the girls as a treat instead and should I give them the cobs or take it off the cobb!

    chickens can eat dried corn on a cob, try cutting a cob in half and tossing it in the run. it's like cracked corn only whole.

    They can eat both. But its funny to see them play "keep away" with the popped corn!

    My chickens were just playing keep away with the grapes I gave them, it was very funny.
