Feed brown rice to chickens

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi,

I have cooked some brown rice in a pan and then left it to cool in a bowl, I look at it now and it seems to have little bits of something stuck to each of the bits of rice. Is that fine ? I am worried if that stuff is supposed to come off while cooking ? Also the rice is about one year old, is it okay ? Please tell me the truth, I have fed my chicks a few pinches worth of rice because i was worried if it was dangerous.

Thanks for reading

The rice is fine. That's what brown rice is supposed to look like. Your birds will love it. If you are feeding chicks then just give them a bit at a time. Rice alone isn't a balanced feed so treat it like a snack.

I would eat it myself, and it's fine to feed to your birds. They'll love it as a treat.
