met a man yesterday that has a full flock of chickens and feeds them ONLY raw rice . This is rice thats still in the hulls . He told me thats ALL he has ever feed his fock and they are very healthy . He raises for eggs , meat and resale of chickens . Nice little set up he has going . He sold me a bag of this raw rice for 8.00 for 50 lb. bag . ANYBODY ever use or try this raw rice ? When he told me " RAW RICE " I said what ? you buy rice from supermarket or rice mill and feed your chickens that ? HE then explained . I said MINE are on LAYING PELLETS and he said he has never feed laying pellets at all and have been raising flocks for past 18 years .
