    I am the proud owner of about 100 lbs of rice seed that was run over several times by a forklift when the bag busted before it could be treated.

    How much can I feed them and can I feed it to them? Gotta love free food, especially now though.





    Edited because evidently I can not spell of.

    I feed mine rice when I can get it. I don't know what you mean by treated. I have some friends that have rice fields. When I visit them I always leave with a 1/2 ton or so of fresh rice and I just give it to the chickens along with their feed.

    Treated means the chemicals added before planting. They put all kinds of junk on it before they plant it. The super bag (big huge bag) busted before it could be treated and this dumped on the warehouse floor. It was damaged by the fork lift so they could not sell it. Works out well for me. My dh scooped it up for me. [​IMG]
