Is there a type of feed or supplement you can give your hens so they lay eggs that contain Omega 3?
I'd like to hear also, so here's a bump
You can feed flaxseed, it's readily available at your feed store. I use 1 cup per 14 lbs of feed and it also makes your birds beautifully shiny!
I read that birds that free-range lay eggs higher in Omega 3. Makes sense. It's in plants.
wait, i just posted on this. did you post somewhere else as well? Double posting is a no no
i am prty sure that all eggs have omega 3 in them and free range ones r higher in omega 3s
nope, my bad! Same question different poster....LOL in feeding, geesh i though i was going crazy when i didn't see my post
Flax seed all the way. There are some folks who feed fish products to boost OFA but it can be dicey to use. From what I understand the fish meal can become dangerously rancid before you even are aware of it.
