I don't think it's poisonous for them, since many feed manufacturers add RICE BRAN (the outer part of the rice grain) to the mixes. However, I would be careful about using small amounts, and after water has been added so the swelling of the grains wouldn't be an issue.
I think it's just far cheaper to feed other ingredients in most cases, but I doubt it's actually harmful if treated as any other grain product should be (judiciously and slowly addded to the diet)
