    Yes. Mine love it. The thing is, plain white rice is not very nutritious, so I only offer it occasionally.

    Thank you for that information! It's nice to know what to give as treats.I'm from Maine and couldn't help but notice that waste of lobster in the photo. We pull apart the body and find lots of chunky meat in it for us humans and also the legs(if sucked on) have a bit in them also. I know the hens love it, but so do we. Merry
