For those of you who feed flaxseed oil, how much do you give it, and how often?

I use capsules made for humans. you can get it at Wal-Mart or any pharmacy. Air is what causes oils to become rancid so I find the capsules easier to keep the oil fresh.

My hedgie usually takes about 2 days to eat his bowl of kibble. With the flax seed oil, do you need to put just the right amount in there for one night and toss anything that's left over, or would it be okay to stay in the bowl for that second day? I've noticed a little bit of dry skin on Quentin (not horribly bad, but I don't want him to have dry skin all winter), and I'm considering using the flax seed oil. I just wasn't sure about that part of it. What do you guys usually do?

Reaper, how long does the bottle you use last? I would like to get some of the capsules, but I was concerned about them going bad before I use them.
