does anybody know a good organic wholegrain recipe for omega 3 eggs.
To get the Omega 3 in the feed you will have to add flaxseed. That is a readily available source. Not sure of what other grains are high in Omega 3.
Alot of this omega 3 eggs is nothing more than creative marketing, would be far better off just eating some of the types of things they feed to chickens in hopes some of the omega 3 is passed onto the eggs.
Beans, fish oils, flax oil, nuts, nut oils, olive oil, sprouts, leafy vegies.
i figured, thanks
Free ranged chickens on pasture also have higher Omega 3 in there eggs than store bought eggs.
Forget omega eggs, just eat a spoon of flax for yourself. Get the fats (omega3) and the fiber directly without most being metabolized by the bird. LOL Marketing at it's finest.
you misunderstand, i AM the marketer! i realize that 'omega3' eggs fetch a higher price, and at what cost, a spoonful of flax seeds! i am looking forward to organic, free run omega 3 quail eggs! wondering what that'll rake in......but i do not intend to rip off people, my eggs will live up to their expectations! plus, my run is humongous, and is filled with trees roosts and grasses, but i still cannot technically call it 'free range' cause they are still penned in
I think a good source of omega 3 is grass.
I added flax to my babies foods, also give them cracked sunflower seeds, nuts , sprouts and so much more.... Every day! But my girls did not take to the flax, they just refuse it. I still add anyways hoping they will eat some. They free range now for more then 8/10 hours a day . I think there pretty much full of omega lol

Depends where you are at.
Around here, you would get from .25 to 2.00 a dozen for quail egg depending on the time of the year and it doesn't matter if there organic, free run, omega 3 or regular old quail eggs.
