    Can chickens eat it? My mom has some she got that are falling apart, she (and I) are wondering if the chickens can have it.

    Well....I am not sure about Indian corn but I would think that is would be pretty much the same as regular dried corn. Maybe do a search on Indian corn & see what turns up? Sorry I can't help much. [​IMG]

    Yes, they can have it. It's the same as any other field corn. Just like the difference between red apples and green. Some are better for pie....but it's all apples.

    Yes, they can eat it... but it would be nice if you could crack it for them, helps with digestion.
