    Yes corn is a good meal for the hens if you notice corn fed chickens have a different coloured fat under the skin and a slightly different flavour as well

    Yes indeed it is. The yokes are darker and has more flavor when cracked corn is fed in combination.

    Throw them some bugs too. They have to be fresh. This can also be entertaining.
