    Is there a type of feed or supplement you can feed your hens to get eggs that contain Omega 3?

    Flaxseed!

    It will increase the Omega 3s in your eggs a TON!

    But, if you're eating the eggs yourself (vs. selling them as high Omega 3 eggs) it's much more cost effective to eat the flaxseed then to feed it to chickens.
