    Any crop issues with chickens eating popped popcorn?

    Just wondering if anyone has experience.... one way or the other.

    My son brings home movie theater popcorn and I feed it to my birds as a treat. They LOVE it!! I've never had an issue and I've been feeding it for aprox. a year.

    Thanks, I gave it to my birds today. The leghorns went wild for it, the others almost turned up their beaks at it. weird.

    I'd be worried about salt and butter from movie theatre popcorn but if you making it at home you can give it plane.
