A couple nights ago I made a really delicious and rich rice pilaf with Basmati rice, butter and homemade chicken stock. Ate the leftovers for lunch today except for a couple tablespoons. Just now fed it to the chickens. They were doing back flips to get it. A couple of the really skittish ones let me get a hand on them while they were pecking the rice out of the other hand. The slightly tamer ones wouldn't even stop pecking when I lifted them up.
