    Has anyone had any experience with this? I was thinking of buying this product but wanted some testimonials and reviews to see if it was any good?

    Just started it my self but with the Flaxseed meal, Linseed Meal, and Fish Meal, I would think that it should give a good sheen to the feathers.

    Also my roo is in the breeding pen, you said to mix it in with the feed, would it be ok if my hen eats it too? She is laying right now and i dont want it to effect her egglaying or do you have any experience with that? Also does it just look like any other crumble or whats it look like?

    I just started feeding this, too, on Chris' recommendation. I like how it smells (anise), and everyone seems to like it just fine. My show birds mingle with my breeders, so everyone gets some, broodies included! I haven't been using it long enough to see a difference, except maybe that I need to trim beaks more. I expect that it has the same effect that prenatal vitamins have for humans...........
