Feeding Corn to Chickens


Poultry expert Robert Plamondon suggests giving whole corn to chickens. In addition to contributing xanthophylls that make the yolks a lovely golden yellow, corn may help reduce the cost of feed. He suggests a 50/50 split of corn and pellets/laying feed.

According to Plamondon, if hens are fed oyster shells, grit is optional.

Regardless of whether or not you feed corn to laying hens, always give them a laying hen diet, which will provide proper, balanced amounts of vitally important protein, calcium, phosphorus, and other nutrients.
