Flax

Linum usitatissimum. Cool-season, full-sun annual. Plant in springtime. It has seeds that are very nutritious and high in Omega-3 fatty acids. Flax can be grown similar to a grain.

Although flax is highly nutritious for chickens, avoid giving your hens excessive amounts of flax seed. If they eat too much, it creates a strong flavor in their eggs.
