I am wanting to grow some of my own corn -- probably bloody butcher dent corn variety, for my chooks. But the truth is I don't have a clue what I should do with the crop after it is harvested. What do you do with earns of corn after harvest? Do you dry them before grinding? Do you get the corn kernels off the ear while it is in the "milk" stage, or do you wait until after it dries? Can the chickens peck the corn kernels off the ear after the corn dries? Can you feed the corn to the birds in the "milk" stage, like humans eat it? I know what to do with (human food) sweet corn, but I don't have clue what to do with dent corn for chickens.
