I've always given my hens limestone grit and it's always worked just fine would I be able to give that to the chicks if I were to grind it up a little smaller
Thanks for the help
Theres no need to bother about grit as mum will take her chicks out and about and they'll get the grit they need from pecking around in the soil. If you choose to keep them in the coop for a while before letting mum and chicks out, then no grit is needed for starter food. Personally, i leave the decision when and where to take the chicks to mum - they know what their chicks needs are a lot better than us humans I have never had a need to add grit to the diet of my chickens, as they get what they need by doing their thing around the garden. Even if you keep you flock in a run, its still ok providing theres some soil around.
All the best
