  • Eggs: omega 3 or organic?

    Which would you choose? And if you were raising laying hens, how would you best increase the Omega 3 content of the eggs, given the availability of only conventional layer pellets and an Alaskan winter (I.e., no natural forage for 9 months of the year)?

    Thanks!

    organic. I buy organic over the omega 3 in the store, the difference is only 40mg of omega3 max.

        You could feed them whole flax seeds.

          We buy organic, They're better quality and have 20x the O3 that conventional eggs do.

            Thanks for the replies. Greatly appreciated. I have to say that I was in heaven on vacation in Vermont this summer with lots of pastures eggs, occasionally for $1.50/dozen at roadside/family stands. Noticeable difference from my conventionally fed backyard chix eggs (who don't get enough time or space out of their pen to forage naturally)
