    We are cash crop farmers. Of course, its harvest time and since we have a bunny my hubby brought in a bunch of cobs of corn for the bunny.

    I threw a cob in by the chickens. OH MY! TREATS! They cleaned that puppy right off.

    I hear people mentioning cracked corn but I guess it doesn't have to be screenings.

    Oh my yes!! Whenever we eat corn on the cob, we always give the cobs to the chickens. I don't know if they eat the whole thing or what, but we never see the cobs again!!

    Corn was sooo expensive in WA State this year. It's normally around 5 ear/$1 in peak season but the best price I saw was 5 ears/$2. So when my friend's hubbie found it 12/$1 I got $5 worth! The chooks enjoyed... no DEVOURED... the malformed ears. [​IMG] I canned the rest for the human inhabitants of my household.
