    The family that I purchased my last batch of 3 month old chicks from fed Brown rice 1x per day to them as a treat.

    What are anyones thoughts on feeding brown rice (as a treat a couple times a week, not as their staple diet)

    They are now 16 weeks old and along with my older hens get mostly layer pellets with a bit of scratch mixed in.
