    My buddy gave me some rough rice for the chickens. They love it, so does the old buck. He leaves the feed buket of sweet feed to eat the rough rice. Is it bad for him, why does he like it more?

    I dont know why he likes it more but I wouldnt let him have a whole lot of rice. Any change in diet can cause diarreah or bloat. I dont know how bad rice is for them but it isnt in any of their feed mixes so it probably isnt the best thing for them. Maybe a handful or two once a day.
