    I recently purchased a large quantity of COB and have found that there is a small amount of mold in some of it. Is it safe to feed to mt chickens?

    Do not feed mold feed to anything! Moldy corn develops a particularly nasty toxin that can kill. Hopefully you can return the moldy feed.

    No- don't feed it to your chickens or leave it anywhere they can get into it. I would take it back to the store to exchange it or get a refund.
