Omega-3 essential for hen’s health
Just like humans, hens need omega-3 for correct cell development and all over health.

Omega-3: Good for your health too
Feeding Flax Farm Linseed Omega-3 Oil to your hens isn’t just good for their health but it also means the eggs will have a healthier balance of essential fats, rich in omega-3 EPA, DLA and ALA which is so important for people’s health too. This means the eggs from your own hens will be full of omega-3 goodness and good for your family’s health and, if you hatch chicks, gives incubation and young birds a better start in life.
Why Linseed Oil is such a good addition to your hen’s diet
Hens are omnivores, like us, and have similar dietary needs, good levels of omega-3 are essential for health. Modern poultry feed and treats contain grains such as maize and seeds such as sunflower seeds which are high in omega-6 but low in omega-3. This means adding Flax Farm linseed omega-3 oil helps them the omega-6:omega-3 fatty acid balance they need for optimal health.
Old trick for getting top show sheen on exhibition poultry
Soon after I started Flax Farm and pressing linseed oil some of the older poultry breeders and exhibitors they told me there was nothing knew about feeding chickens cold-pressed linseed oil for a fabulous glossier show sheen on their plumage. Speaking from personal experience, it works and they seem more resistant to parasites like scaly leg mite. When they look fabulous you know they are healthy inside too.
