    Can you feed pullets unpopped popcorn? I thought I would suprize my kids the other day and make popcorn the old fashioned way but it did not pop like it should have. Can I feed the kernals to my pullets?

    what age can they have them?
    seems like the kernnels would be too big until they big.

    what about popped popcorn?

    feeding pop corm is maybe okay if there is no burnt kernels and lots of grease on it

    the way to make good pop corn for kids is to use a big 6 qt pan and put the 1/3 cup of oil or more in the pan and then put the pop corn in it
    the heat can be high
    it should pop okay DO NOT put salt in the pan as it keeps the pop corn from poping

    now back to the chicks
    I would not feed it is it has lots of salt on it
    alos the chicks will need the grit as they can't chew it with out grit

    personally I would throw it away period
    no sense damaging good chicks with bad pop corn

    as the chickens get 4-6 months old they can eat clean pop corn with out salt on it
    the pop corn is used for pigeons and chickens if they are older
    email me for help by PM
