Anyone else have chickens? I am thinking about building a large house/tractor which I can move around the yard each day.  Let them feed off grass, worms and bugs.  Not sure if this alone would be enough food or not.  I could even move them twice per day.  I imagine in the winter I’d have to feed them grain?

Right now I am buying the cheap 99 cent per dozen Aldi eggs.. corn fed, caged, brutalized hens (beaks cut off etc) .. quite sad.. and not that healthy I guess?

Just trying to figure out the best way to get good eggs loaded with as much EPA and DHA as possible, with less PUFA like one gets from corn fed hens.

Eggs are a big part of our diet here at home.. I eat 2 each day for breakfast, my boyfriend eats 3 and the dogs gets 3 every day for breakfast as well. (Why not? It’s as cheap as dry dog food.. she loves it and fur is soft and silky.. she’s lost a lot of weight coming from entirely grain fed dog food.. now she gets just eggs in the morning and then in the evening the cheap grain dog food.. figure it helps reduce insulin not mixing fat from eggs with grain.)

Will that result in EPA+DHA in the yolks? i know flaxseed itself isn’t EPA+DHA but do the chickens convert it somehow?

There was a pretty good conversation recently on eggs, tractors and raising layers here; Eggs?

No, not EPA + DHA in the eggs, Jenn, but the omega-3 linolenic acid that yields health benefits of its own.
