I feed flaxseed (Omega Horseshine) to my horses and they love it. I love the results-shiny coat, great hooves and my horse with arthritis moves a lot better on this stuff. Well they've come out with a product called the Ultra Egg, now it's pricey-but I've talked to their VP and she said they're interested in doing smaller bags for the backyard flock owners. She said 1 lb, 4.5 lb, and 20 lb bags are being looked at. For a 50 lb bag of feed you need roughly 3 lbs of this stuff, a little more but math is not my strong point! I was just curious if anyone had good results feeding flax to their chickens-enough so that I may have to give this a try. The link is below if anyone is interested: http://www.omegafields.com/productD...laying_hens_omega3_egg_production_ground_flax I was planning on feeding this when my girls weren't free ranging-around winter thru early spring. I thought it would be a nice side benny for my eggs to still have good amts of omega 3's during the winter months. Thanks!
