is rice safe?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Is it safe to feed chickens rice? I almost gave them some cooked leftover rice, but remembered that rice expands.

I feed mine cooked rice they love it. Plus any left overs I have at the end of the day.

Do chickens think rubber humans are funny?

when rice is cooked it has  absorbed the water it is cooked in so it will not expand any further it as absolutly fine

My peeps love leftovers, even cooked veggies. In fact, they seem to prefer cooked corn on the cob leftovers to the raw cobs I have after de-cobbing cream corn.

I love to give them leftover spaghetti noodles. The resulting game of keep-away as they try to slurp up the noodle is hysterical!

I thought it had been proven that uncooked rice doesn't even hurt wild birds?

Cooked rice is good. It is uncooked grains that you need to keep away from the chicks.
