    A bag of deer corn or feed corn of any kind other than seed corn is hybrid corn. Meaning it is sterile. Although it will come up and make an "ear" it will not have any kernals on the ear.

    You can look for "flint" corn. I believe it an open-pollinated corn which will come true to seed.

    Here is an example: (17.5 cents per seed is a bit much , but the pic is nice)

    It has been some years for me, but the field corn we bought was all treated with poison to kill the crows that would land and dig it up after planting. Don't feed that to your ducks!

    Feed corn should be just fine- not cracked corn!

    Except Timm250 didn't say SEED corn, he said FEED corn and Stimw said in reply to Timm250
    "You have to be careful that it wasn't treated with anything to help it germinate!" to which I asked "Why would feed corn be treated with anything to enhance germination?"
