My chickens love it. If I have a bunch that I don't want to give them all at once I freeze it into couple pound blocks in the freezer. When it comes time to use, I throw the frozen "grain-sicle" into the coop and they go to town. The goats and horse seem to enjoy it too. As an aside, I have noticed that if I make a beer with 100% Pilsner the chickens won't touch it. I guess they are just picky.

I need to revive this thread because I have a friend who is keeping chickens now.

Am I correct in assuming wheat and rice hulls in the grains aren't going to be a problem?

Unless they have Celiac they should be fine. They eat rocks to help "chew" there food anyway so a few rice hulls shouldn't upset the digestive track.

Good tip above regarding freezing extras. You don't want to give them more than they can eat in a day or it will spoil and you get sick chickens.
