    Popcorn is corn. You would give it like any other treat, small amounts occasionally. I pop corn maybe twice a month, and save about 1 1/2 cups for my chickens. I'm usually feeding 3-4 hens. I mix it in with the veggies I give them.

    Yum! I love popcorn - butttered with salt (or Johnys) or homemade kettle corn [​IMG]

    I usually make 1/2 a cup at a time (1/2 cup unpopped kernels) and give what leftovers there might be to the birds. Course with the parrots, not much popcorn makes it outside to the chickens. [​IMG]

    You might try a 1/4 cup, pop it and then divide it up to feed a couple times a week (2 or 3).
