I just purchased twenty 50# bags of high quality milled corn grits from an overstock company. Paid only $1.00 per bag. No bugs and fit for human consumption. Here's the kicker... A farmer buddy says if I feed my ADULT CHICKENS this product, it will swell them up and kill them. I beg to differ. To get corn grits to thicken you have to activate the starch with heat and water. I was a professional cook until lately and know a lot about chemical reaction. Anyway, the raw grits would be fed in moderation mixed with conventional grains and only served as a sub for cracked corn which the price of a 50# bag keeps going up. No proof on the internet to his statement that I could find anyway. Needless to say, we started mixing 10% corn grit to 90% con. grain 4 days ago and no dead chickens or drop in egg production. I think was just trying to spook me because we found a deal of a life time. Saturday morning we are cooking up grits for our family with cream and Monterrey jack cheese.... Yummy!
