Hungry Chickens

I have chickens and ducks that I keep in the coop during the day. They have food and water and a dirt floor to scratch around on. Every time I open the gate, they take off running and start pecking at the cracked corn that I lay down for my pig. They act like they're starving to death. Why do they keep doing this? Bc it makes me feel terrible!
Cracked corn is a treat to chickens. It may be that they just really want that treat.
Mine have the same behavior towards scratch grains.
Have they lost any weight? If so you should worm then. But I agree cracked corn is a treat! Mine go flipping bonkers when they see me with a shovel cause they think it's worm time! They really have us trained!
