    [​IMG] I think it MIGHT be dangerous to feed uncooked rice to chickens or any other birds. Something about it swelling up in their bellies once they drink water, can be fatal. That's why rice isn't tossed at brides anymore, now everyone is tossing birdseed, just for the safety of the wild birds.
