Can you plant the quinoa and get the plants?

I am also wondering if it needs to be cooked. I bought a 5 pound bag of it and I don't care for it. I'm sure the chickens would enjoy it.

I feed it to my chickens a few times a week.  They love it cooked and it's easy.  1 cup quinoa to two cups of water in the rice cooker and presto.  I also save all my chopped veggie parts (kale/spinach/peppers/cucumbers/etc) and add it to the cooker.   I feed my three ladies about 1.5 cups and then put the rest in the fridge for the next time.

I feed flake quinoa uncooked, but it's more like oatmeal.  Not sure about the whole grain stuff.
