I just bought 600lbs of whole corn. It looks good. I was told my my elderly enabler ( we have bought eggs from her since I was 6. Now at 35 I am giving her eggs since she can no longer walk) that whole corn is fine. She gives some every night to get her chickens in the coop and it keeps them warm at night. Ok I am with her on the warm but I have never done whole. Of course on my bantams they will be given cracked and they are kept separate from my standards . Will this be ok to give. Mine get layer feed but the corn is a favorite of my very greedy roo's and it cuts down on my layer feed costs. We also have geese and will soon have ducks. If this works out I may buy bulk from a farmer again. Any input on this? I have read several articles that showed no issue with this and also stated that it saved the germ. Not sure if thats important or not honestly.
