    Can chickens eat uncooked or cooked quinoa?

    They should be able to eat either. Because quinoa is so tiny I would recommend cooking it to decrease waste.

    Based on following trial, should be not problem so long as quinoa does not represent more than 15% of the diet. Small partical size should not be a problem.
