    Can I feed my birds Raw Rice in the Hull ?

    He works in rice: planting & harvesting.
    A friend gave me @50 lbs., he said he feeds it to his all the time.

    NO!

    I would only feed my chickens COOKED rice.

    Here in Phoenix we use rice to kill pigeons. They eat it, drink, it blows up in their craw or gizzard and they die.
