    Yeah. I've fed my hens raw corn and they love it. It might be a little hard for them to digest because it is a little big and hard so make sure they have plenty of grit. I believe most livestock corn is raw.

    A few weeks ago just before we tilled under the garden we gave the chickens a whole mess of corn on the cob. They ate so much it was funny to watch them.
