Feeding chickens flax seed?
We would like to increase the amount of Omega-3s in our chicken's eggs, and I read that we can do that by adding golden flax seed to their regular feed. I know that flax seed must be ground for human consumption ir order to gain any health benefits, so I was wondering if the same is true for chickens, or if the whole seeds are fine for them? Any thoughts??? Experience with flax seed or other methods of getting higher Omega-3 content in eggs?
Thanks so much!
