can I feed my hens white rice and pinto beans I have 10 gallon of each
White rice doesn't have much nutrition in it, so I would consider it a treat. They can eat it raw or cooked. I would make sure to have grit available, either in the soil or provided for them. (I read an old study once where they fed the chickens only white rice and they died.)
Pinto beans are fine IF COOKED. Raw they would be toxic.
yep, and to boost the protein add some raw eggs when your done cooking it, the heat from the rice and beens will cook the eggs as it cools.
I feed 2 five gallon buckets of cooked rice, brewers yeast and eggs to my flock when my feed is running short because my feed order does not come in on tiime and they love it.
