    Hi everyone. My hubby cooked a chili last night and managed (dont ask) to burn the rice at the bottom. Anyway, he was gonna throw the lot away, so I suggested we see if the chickens like it. Anyway, I fed it to them and they LOVE it!!! My question is, is rice ok for them to eat? I just dont want anything bad to happen to my girls.

    I was warned not to feed chickens beans from my chili because they cant fart. Chickie loves beans, eats them often and has not exploded yet.[​IMG]

    We give are chickens and geese cooked brown rice and peas as a treat especially in the Winter. They love it and are very healthy!
