Hemp Seed For Laying Hens & Birds:

Recent feeding trials with chickens have confirmed that hemp seed is an excellent source of nutrition for laying hens (chooks), where the omega fatty acid profile in eggs was favorably influenced after feeding hemp seed meal (Silversides et al., 2002). This is in agreement with empirical observations over thousands of years in China and other Asiatic nations.

About Hemp: Hemp is not to be confused with Marijuana. While hemp looks very similar it has very low levels of THC (<1%) the intoxicating ingredient of marijuana which is usually between 4 to 24%. You could think of hemp as the equivalent of alcohol-free beer. It has all the healthy aspects of cannabis without the unhealthy intoxicating effects.

Hemp seed can be legally produced under license in most states of Australia and in New Zealand and can be used for pet food, body care products and (under specified conditions in some Australian states and in New Zealand) for livestock feed. It may not currently be used for human consumption in Australia, but hemp seed oil may be consumed in New Zealand. (NSW DPI 2008)
