My chicks LOVE Brown Rice. I have to confess that I cook a whole pot once a week, it simmers for about 45 minutres. But I felt gulity, I thought darn, too much starch, but I put a nice helping of Tropican Baby Hand feed formula on the rice. 22% protein. So, they love it, I call them before hand, and they just go crazy. I give them nice greens afterwords, Red Leaf Lettuce, Romain, and watever is really green. Geez they live pretty nicely. Anone else do different feeding??
