    I have a little bit of cooked rice leftover that we won't be eating. Is it ok to give it to my chickens?

    Mine go crazy for cooked brown rice. It's one of their favorite treats.

    My girls love it. I mix it with plain yogurt too for them.

    I gave them some last night. They were quite excited. Then again these girls get quite excited about everything. They are hungry all the time. They inhale everything.

    Chicks shouldn't get treats in my opinion. The need a regulated diet, that is high in protein. The rice won't hurt them, but I don't give young chicks like that treats myself.
