The Fall Molt

September 7, 2012 1:38:19 PM CDT

by Don Schrider – Early fall is the time our birds change their feathers. As winter approaches, this provides birds with a brand new set to give them the best possible protection from cold, wind, and precipitation (snow, rain, and ice). It is a great advantage for our birds to change their natural “clothing” each year just when they need the most protection.Read More

Of Power Outages and Baby Chicks

July 6, 2012 10:32:08 AM CDT

by Don Schrider -- This summer of 2012 has turned hot and we on the east coast have been hit hard with storms that have taken the power out for many days at a time. The chickens are surviving this handsomely, needing no electricity as long as they have food, shelter, and water.Read More

Newton, WI, June 6, 2012 – Omega Fields' Omega Ultra Egg™ was recently put to the test by Fresh Eggs Daily, a blog dedicated to the backyard chicken and duck owner. Happily, the results are very favorable.
 
Lisa Steele., Fresh Eggs Daily (FED) founder and editor of the blog (fresh-eggs-daily.blogspot.com) and accompanying Facebook page, after using the Omega-3-rich, milled flaxseed supplement for one month, found that its claims of increased Omega-3 in eggs, stronger shells, increased egg production and more brilliant plumage are accurate.
 
Prior to trying Omega Ultra Egg, Steele had been adding whole flaxseed to her special poultry feed mixture but had to stop because ducks shouldn't eat seeds. Further, ground flaxseed spoils very quickly and, since she didn't relish the thought of hand grinding flaxseed daily, she regrettably had to leave the flax out.
 
When Steele learned from Omega Fields about the proprietary stabilizing treatment applied to their milled flaxseed supplements that inhibits oxidation for 18 months, added to the promise of increased Omega-3 in her eggs – up to 8x - she quickly agreed to try the poultry supplement. 
 
"I have been feeding Omega Ultra Egg to my flock for about a month now," said Steele.  "Mind you, they ate a healthy diet previously, so I kind of wondered if I would be able to spot any improvements in their appearance or egg quality, but they do look great now. Their feathers are nice and glossy, their combs are bright red, and egg yolks are a brilliant orange. I also think the egg [shell] colors themselves have gotten deeper and richer due to the Omega Ultra Egg in their diet – the blues are bluer, the browns a deeper brown and the creams creamier. I also notice that the shells are appreciably thicker."
 
Steele was so excited about the results that she recently posted a shining review of Omega Ultra Egg on her Fresh Eggs Daily blog and featured the supplement as the prize in a contest. Omega Ultra Egg is also being promoted on their Facebook page.
 
"I am sold on this product, Steele added. I think it's a wonderful, affordable addition to any flock's nutrition.  In addition to the flaxseed, it contains folic acid, zinc sulfate, and Vitamins E, B-6 and B-12.  I highly recommend trying it yourself to see what you think."

Newton, WI, June 6, 2012 – Omega Fields®, the premiere manufacturer of Omega-3-rich, ground flaxseed supplements for animals, is pleased to announce their association with the American Buckeye Club (ABC) and sponsorship of ABC's Annual Club Meet, June 9, 2012 in Canfield, Ohio.  Meet attendees visiting the ABC table will receive valuable how-to information about the care and raising of Buckeye chickens, learn about the many benefits Omega-3 has for flock health and egg production, and enter to win Omega-3-rich Omega Ultra Egg™. Bags of Omega Ultra Egg will also be awarded as prizes to Open and Junior class Buckeye Champions.
 
The American Buckeye Club was established in 1909 by Nettie Metcalf, the breed's creator. The club, disbanded for a number of years, was resurrected in May 2008 by a few Ohio based Buckeye breeders with the goal of preserving the Buckeye breed. Through the ABC, its 200-plus members learn to understand and adhere to the American Poultry Association (APA) Standard of Perfection to produce better quality fowl. The club offers a tremendous amount of information and data about proper feeding and nutrition.
 
Jeff Lay, one of the co-founders of the ABC, stated, "Many ABC members are ardent advocates of supplementing poultry feed with Omega-3 essential fatty acids to promote brilliant plumage, better health and Omega-3-rich eggs with strong shells. We believe our members (and other poultry breeders) can benefit by using Omega Ultra Egg."
 
Omega Ultra Egg is the superior supplement with the best, whole-ground flaxseed high in Omega-3, folic acid, vitamin E, and vitamin B-12. It is milled using only whole, intact flaxseeds for optimum nutritional value and freshness, with proprietary stabilization technology to maintain full nutritional value, guaranteed for 18 months.
 
"Buckeyes really benefit from Omega-3 supplementation and Omega Ultra Egg™ is the best product on the market for getting greater amounts of Omega-3 into your eggs," said Lay. "It's easy to use – Buckeye chickens love it – and the effects are near immediate. Omega Ultra Egg is the best supplement to help your Buckeyes win Best in Show! It will also improve laying rates, flock health, and overall egg quality."
 
Omega Ultra Egg is available at over 3,000 retail stores, nationwide. Visit the Omega Fields' Dealer Locator on their website, www.OmegaFields.com, for a store near you.

Newton, WI, May 15, 2012 – Don Schrider, Omega Fields® poultry spokesperson, was a featured lecturer and exhibitor at the recent Fancy Feathers Show in Dayton, OH, April 28-29.

Schrider spoke to adults and 4-H members about the selection, care and feeding of poultry to obtain the body mass, feather gloss and sheen necessary for winning at poultry shows. Schrider awarded bags of Omega Ultra Egg™ from Omega Fields® to Brandi Powell, the winner of Champion Junior Large Fowl on an Australorp cockerel; Seth Tumlin, Champion Junior Bantam winner; and five lucky winners of a drawing held at the Omega Fields booth.

One of the winners of the Omega Ultra Egg drawing was Mark Atwood of North Carolina, who amazed all by taking both Super Grand Champion of Show with a Bantam Single Comb Light Brown Leghorn pullet and Reserve Super Grand Champion of Show with a Large Fowl Single Comb Light Brown Leghorn pullet.

Other winners of the drawing were Bud Blankenship, Evan Edingfield, Jerry Powell, and Kathy Gratsch.

 

When not speaking about his favorite topic – chickens - Schrider was at his booth teaching the benefits of supplementing poultry diets with Omega-3 from Omega Fields' Omega Ultra Egg. The perfect ratio of Omega-3, -6, and -9 essential fatty acids found in Omega Ultra Egg promote brilliant plumage, better health and Omega-3-rich eggs with strong shells. Omega Ultra Egg is the superior supplement with the best, whole-ground flaxseed high in Omega-3, folic acid, vitamin E, and vitamin B-12. It is milled using only whole, intact flaxseeds for optimum nutritional value and freshness, using proprietary stabilization technology to maintain full nutritional value, guaranteed for 18 months.

"For many folks, this was the first opportunity to discover Omega Ultra Egg," said Schrider. "[They] realized quickly the benefits Omega Ultra Egg could give to the sheen on the plumage of their birds. It was surprising, though, how many folks that show birds were interested in the health benefits of the eggs from Omega Ultra Egg."

Over 1200 birds were exhibited at the show, which drew 39 junior exhibitors, 128 exhibitors overall and attendees from many Eastern, Southern and Central  states. The show was the site of an American Poultry Association Meet and the National Meet for the American Brown Leghorn Club. There were four judges, including one from Canada.

Both large and bantam chickens were exhibited in a wide array of breeds and colors. There were also turkeys, geese, ducks and guinea keets.
