    so I was at the farmers market, and the kettle corn guy asked if I wanted all the scrap corn that he normally throws away.
    The scrap was just the smaller broken pieces of popped corn that was at the bottom of the kettle.
    There was a giant bag of it so I grabbed it in case chickens would like.
    Just wondering what you guys think about that. I know it has salt and sugar but do you think it would be ok to feed to growing chickens?
    Thanks

    Too much salt can be dangerous to chickens, but just a little shouldn't hurt them.
