What effects egg flavor???
Garlic and onions...also heard acorns will turn the yolk a green color?
Ok.. I also heard flax seeds can make the eggs have a fishy taste... I give my hens bird seed for a treat...does bird seed have flax in it???
I heard flax seed is good for the eggs I think omega? Haven't heard it making eggs taste fishy...friend of mine is a ENT dr and she says feeding flax makes egg more nutritious
If you have well water, and it has a sulfer smell, then you can have stinky eggs if your chickens drink that.....
Quote:It is recommended that you give flax seed instead of fish oil (for Omega 3) to prevent fishy tasting eggs.
The bag said omega 3 on the flax seed bag. I feed my girls flax seed, food grade apple cider vinegar, wheat, oats and barley and I think that will make richer eggs. JMHO
Quote:Bird seed is usually millet, black oil sunflower seed, and if you get the expensive stuff- it's Nyjer thistle seed. No flax seed.
I've been wondering if the chickens eat a lot of stink bugs whether the eggs will get the stink bug stink. My chicks love them and eat them by the dozens, but they're not laying yet. Was just wondering.
