I would like to plant both this year - given that I get the garden expanded as planned. I've been reading that these two type of corn should be "isolated" from each other. What would be the minimum distance to be considered "isolation"?

Also, I'm assuming chickens like ornamental corn. It would have to be cracked first, right? There is "Strawberry" corn available to me, it's a mini, coloured popping corn, I'm thinking it would be small enough for chooks to swallow whole.

Hi WL
If you can find the polination dates of each variety you can plant them several weeks apart so they are shedding pollen at two different times. If you do this you can plant them side by side and they won't polinate each other.
