    Default Linseed flakes?

    Just bought some of these at the feed shop. However, it doen't say what to do with them. I dont think they are the ones I boil? they had those in seed for sitting next to them.

    How much do I give? A handful just put straight in? Thanks xx

    Jeez if you arent sure if they need cooking please dont feed them!!

    Go and check with whoever you bought them from as raw linseed is very poisonous!!!!

    I did ask, and they just sort of said, oh no not those ones, the seed next to it needs boiling. But you know when those little bells just go off? They weren't convincing enough for me!!

    WE can buy linseed cubes from our feed merchant. Look a bit like "fishermans Friend lozengers". They come in a clear plastic bag with a white label as you say with yours. But you just feed them like a treat, or scatter a few on top of their feed. These are already cooked. But yours might not be the same. But yours might not be like mine so find out for sure first.

    I buy linseed lozenges, they are like lozenge sweets so don't need boiling.

    I feed these at 150 grams a day, I took advice from the manufacturer

    They will probably be ok, but I wouldn't take the risk.

    Get either simple systems linseed or gold lable do instant linseed in feed or oil form.

    You can get linseed cake - looks like toffee squares - I used to feed this years ago to one of my TBs.
