    Can 6 month old laying pullets eat whole corn for a treat, or does the corn need to be cracked?

    Yes, they can eat whole corn just fine, just do it in moderation. Good luck!

    Thanks for the info. I have been gleaning just cut corn fields, and didn't know if I needed to crack the corn for my hens. Thanks!!!!

    I just throw a whole cob in and let them peck at it.
