To feed or not to feed...

Can chickens eat sprouted rice and quinoa that is uncooked? I have a pretty healthy bag left over and was thinking of throwing some down in the chicken run but was unsure if they could eat these seeds/grain without it being cooked.

Thanks for the help!
Most grains we consume can be consumed by chickens without processing / cooking. Rice for sure. The other I am not familiar with.

Make certain it represents only a small portion of what is consumed on a given day to avoid problems similar to those promoted by too much scratch grains.
Absolutely. I take it that would make digestion much easier? Is it worth taking the time to ferment, or would cooking suffice?
