It may come as a shock to you, but chickens are not vegetarians. In fact, given the opportunity, a chicken will eat a very well balanced and varied diet of fruits, vegetables, greens, grains, insects, grubs and even meat. Since their natural tendency is to consume a variety of foods, it is important that you feed your flock accordingly.

In addition to being a potential allergen, corn for chickens is similar to candy for children. Corn contains simple sugars, which can be converted easily into energy. This energy can be particularly useful in cold winters to help keep you girls warm. In excess though, particularly in the warmer months, these extra calories can make your flock a bit over weight.

Simply put, omega-3 Eggs are eggs rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Let us emphasize “rich” in Omega-3. All eggs have Omega-3 of approximately 50mg. Many Omega-3 eggs offered in the store that boast “Omega-3” have about 100mg which is better. But, eggs rich in Omega-3 can have up to six times the amount of omega-3 than normal eggs.
