I have recently wanted to have my chicken lay those great "Omega-3" eggs, and I learned that feeding them fish meal was the best way to do this. I contacted my local fertrell dealer to order the fish meal from them, since it was recommended as a great product. My dealer only carries the organic (which I tend to buy anyway) but it costs $100 per 50 lb. bag! I only have 5 chickens! It would probably go rancid after I go through 5 lbs. So I started brainstorming. I did more research on other fish meal options, and I learned that fish meal is made by cooking or drying an industrial fish (not fit for human consumption) and pressing most or all of the oil and water from it before fully processing it into fish meal. Yet, from what I understand, it is the fish oil that contains all of the good stuff- the EPA and DHA and all those excellent Omegas. So I conclude that fish meal is not the best source of Omegas for our chickens. Don't you think? Since I have such a small flock, I am now thinking that it might be cost-effective for me, and healthful for my chickens, to just feed them canned wild pink Alaskan salmon. The pink is cheaper than the red, and as far as I know, wild Alaskan salmon is the very best source of EPA, DHA, and all the good Omegas. I know that I don't want my chickens to suffer from mercury poisoning, so I would not feed this to them every day, but for $2.50 a week, I can feed my flock twice a week. I have tried it a couple of times, and my girls LOOOOVE it! Then the next day, my eggs have a delicious flavor, reminiscent of lobster . So I ask, can anyone think of any reason why I should NOT feed my birds canned wild pink Alaskan salmon once or twice a week? My girls say "please please!!"
