Flax seeds?

Postby malerris21 » Sun May 31, 2009 10:09 pm

Does anyone know if flax seeds are good - or bad - to add to the mix of nuts/seeds? I know they're great for us, but they are high in omega-3 (which is why they're so great for us.) Would a very small amount be ok?
Also (and I'm serious with this one) What about hemp seeds? Also great for us, my rabbit loved them and it never seemed to cause him harm, but a flyer is obviously not a rabbit :idea: Just a few more things that popped into my head as I plan and prepare (obsess, says the boyfriend :roll: ) for HOFhood

The general way I figure what to give is by asking myself if it's available to them in the wild.

Flax comes from the Linseed plant. Three states, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Minnesota, raise nearly 100% of this plant.
