Corn is an important part of a chickens or parrots diet. Cracked or sliced corn is often used by chicken owners to help make their birds egg yolks richer, in colour and taste.
Corn or maize is used in the diet of poultry, parrots, pigs, sheep, & horses. Corn tends to be lower in protein but a higher energy source than other grains. It is cracked or ground to improve digestibility.
Corn is great to add to your chickens diet in winter to give them an energy boost and warm them up!
Cryptoxanthin is a colour pigment present in corn which helps give egg yolks a yellow colour.
