    Just be sure you don't give them much, cause cracked corn is basically a filler and has little to no nutritional value. It works very well to help them stay warm in cold weather, you can give them some right before bedtime.

    I compare giving cracked corn to birds with giving chocolate to kids....it might not be good for them, but they sure do love it! [​IMG]
