    My chickens love it when I throw a cob of corn in their pen husk and all. I takes them a bit to get the husk off and gives them something to do. Can I freeze a bunch of corn right in their husk? Use freezer bags? Will that work?
    Thanks! [​IMG]

    It might work but I would boil it and freeze it whole after cooking.

    yes you can freeze it in the husks without boiling it and it will be fine

    Or do you give it to them uncooked? If you do it uncooked then I say it should work fine.

    Thanks everyone, I will try it. Yes, I do give it to them uncooked. They love it!

    I've often given COTC to mine, but never in the husks; just never thought of it. I guess it didn't occur to me that they COULD get to it if they were industrious enough... I'll try the in-husk style next time! [​IMG]

    how's about drying it and then throwing it to them??? hang the cobs somewhere and you'll have a winter's worth of fun treats

    :)

    we are lucky to know folks how farm huge plots and they let us gleen in the fields after they are done combining - we get TONS of whole cobs. its a great way to keep the flock busy in winter
