Linseed is a small brown flat seed that is rich in essential oils that is popular with both wild birds and aviary birds. Linseed is high in Omega 3 fatty acids that is both valuable and essential for birds when they are moulting to help maintain their feathers. Linseed is similar to rapeseed, it's high in protein, high dietary fibre, rich in B vitamins and trace elements such as calcium, magnesium and phosphorous, but also high in fat and energy too!
Linseed is grown in the spring, harvested and screened then added to various wild bird foods, aviary bird mixtures and parrot foods, that is relished by finches and yellow hammers, but is also a good tonic seed helping wild birds keep warm during the cold winter months.
Feeding your caged birds or parrots linseed also prevents egg binding, but also helps balance saturated fats and omega 6 in your birds diet, by increasing your birds daily intake of omega 3 that can cause a number of health problems if owners don't change their diets, including arthritic joints, heart disease, dry scaly skin, dull plumage and even depression, that is often caused by your birds eating too much millet, sunflower seeds and nuts that are high in omega 6 and saturated fats.
