Ayerza, R. (h) and Coates, W. 2001. Omega-3 enriched eggs: The influence of dietary α-linolenic fatty acid source on egg production and composition. Can. J. Anim. Sci. 81: 355–362. A study was conducted to assess the effect of replacing chia with flaxseed as a source of α-linolenic acid in laying hen feed. Five diets, identified as T0 through T4, containing 0-0, 7-3, 9-5, 11.5-2.5 and 14-0% whole chia seed and whole flaxseed, respectively, were fed to 240 White Shaver laying hens, at 60 wk of… CONTINUE READING
