Can I feed chickens unpopped popping corns?

Do I need to crack popping corns before feeding them to the chickens? Can their gizzards break up the whole kernels?

I wouldn't recommend feeding a lot of popping corn, but in small quantities and with sufficient grit, the chickens may be able to digest the whole kernels. Too many kernels, however, would overload their systems.
