Flax Seed Oil For Hens
Research has suggested that people will be healthier and have fewer heart problems if they increase their consumption of Omega-3 fatty acids, traditionally coming from fish and fish oil but many people eat only limited amounts of these foods. Eggs fortified with Omega-3 fatty acids offer an alternative method to increase the amount of these fatty acids in our diet.
You can increase the level of Omega-3 fatty acids in the eggs that your hens lay by including Flax Seed Oil in their feed. PureFlax Flax Seed Oil contains a type of omega-3 Essential Fatty Acid (EFA) called a linolenic acid (ALA) and the hen will deposit a significant amount of this dietary fatty acid into the egg yolk and meat of the birds.
…that the addition of polyunstaurated fatty acids (PUFAs) to the diet of laying hens is used to produce PUFA-enriched eggs, and has been investigated as a means of improving bird health and welfare. The n-6 PUFAs including the ALA found in Flax Seed oil are the major sources of PUFAs in the diet.
In the research this significantly decreases Campylobacter numbers in the caecum and liver of infected birds, believed to be due to an increase of Omega 3 and its health benefits and an increase in intestinal barrier function.
Did You Know?

Other oils available such as Vegetable Oil may be cheaper, but many are heat-treated or have chemicals added (either in the growing or in production) therefore they will not deliver the same benefits as PureFlax
