    I have been using this as their evening treat.... is it okay in the heat and is there a limit to how much I should feed? Also can chickens have cooked plain rice? Thanks!

    I give ours a 12 oz can of BOSS and one of scratch in the Morning. But I draw the line at cooking rice for them. It doesn't hurt them though. We never finish all our dinner rice and they are eager to have it, I woudn't take a chance with uncooked. There was a concern about rice at weddings so some throw bird seed because the birds couldn't digest it, I really don't know where it came from.................maybe the guy who had to sweep it up:D
