    Ok, weird one but bear with me...

    Got 2 3 weeks old, been on chicks feeds since, some vitamined water.

    Gave them flax seeds earlier, dismissed, no reaction at first, then got a taste and went nuts on them.

    2 minuets later, they're comatose-ish, sorta dusting around-like amd rolling on each other like it's the late 60's...

    they're all good but that reminded me of cats with catnip...

    ever heard of such a flax buzz?

    My pigeons used to react somewhat like that after a flax treat. Why not try some ? :p

    That is interesting! Sadly, doesn't seem to have the same effect on me. :lau

    Oh this is so funny. Nope, never heard of it but now I want to try it. Aldi sells bags of flax seed in the baking section for like $4. It would be worth it to see this. :lau
