Is it practical for me to start cracking my own corn.

    I have 18 chickens and growing every couple months. I have access to lots of corn and am wondering if it's a good idea to start to crack my own corn. I have a lot of neighbors that might be interested in getting some.

    Any help on this is greatly appreciated!

    If there's a business doing it than do it, I feed both cracked and whole corn, some nutrition can be lost in cracking, rolling is actually better.
