    The chickens are fully grown (My friend gave the chickens to me, so i don't know their age) and he also gave me a 4 weeks old chick and duckling living together.

    They would have no problems eating any of those foods whole. Whole grains like corn and wheat are used in scratch feed, although some do use cracked corn. That list looks like it is from a home feed mix.
