Being here in Texas where healthy/food is a forbidden subject and apparently where it is just too toasty for Flax to grow.... I have a few questions on feeding flax to my birds, before the expense of shipping some in. I am aware of the fact that one must keep the amount fed to a minimum or risk flavoring the very eggs we all wish to improve. That said feeding a flock of 36, with only about 17 layers right now but due to increase, almost double within the next few months. Only finding "reasonable" coff coff prices when buying small bags such as 3-12# size Keeping to the "under 10%" rule how long would I reasonable be able to expect a, say 12# bag to last? Would it really justify the $50.00 to get it here? Are there other alternatives? Anyone with advice on Chia Seed? Have seen in my research on the net that it is actually better for the Omega 3's I am looking to improve. Any advice on Chia for Chickens? good idea, bad? or just don't even go there? My best egg customer has just recently been through a triple bypass and is under doctor's orders to increase her Omega 3 intake as well as her Lutein intake, Have already got a great start with a planter FULL of Marigolds growing very well after the rains we have had recently. Anyone with any advice out there? This unhealthy redneck needs all the help he can get!
