Hi, I am a newbie to chickens and had some questions about fodder. I choose to feed my flock organically while they have free ranged on about 8 total acres (ours and our neighbors) all spring and summer. However, for the past week there has been a hawk (no idea what kind) stalking my flock. So we have had them on lockdown in their coop until we can get a run built. All of that to say...can I fodder (is that even correct usage of the word) all of their feed? (I use all whole grains) Also, the recipe I use calls for corn (which I thought would be a good idea with cold weather coming). I did find a good organic corn , however, they will not eat it. I think they're spoiled, A few will pick at it but its always left on the ground. So if anyone can tell me what I could use to replace corn, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks is advance for any help!
