Was revisiting Gene Logsdon’s Small-Scale Grain Raising over lunch yesterday. We grew field corn this year – not much, just a first attempt to help keep the feed bill down, but y’know, enough to fill the (long) bed of a 1951 L-120 International Harvester pickup truck. I keep wanting to grind the corn, but Gene’s book reminds me there is no need. Especially if your chickens have crops (ours do!) and access to sand/dirt/grit (again, yes!). Indeed, they gobble up those whole kernels, and the eggs keep coming.
