    Hi, does Purina have a dha enriched poultry feed? Does your Meatbird feed have molasses in it? Thanks you, Karen

    Great question, 3riverschick!

    We don’t have a feed that specifically targets DHA content, but Layena Plus Omega-3 will increase Omega-3 content of the eggs. That includes DHA. A large egg from a hen fed Layena Plus Omega for at least 21 days should contain about 90 mg of DHA. For comparison, a standard store-bought egg will contain about 25 mg of DHA. For your second question, Purina Flock Raiser does contain molasses.

    For more information on how to enhance the Omega-3's in your farm fresh eggs, click here.
