Chicken Grit?????????

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi! I took my month old chicks outside and had them just peck at the dirt and eat worms and grass and pretty much whatever they wanted. I know that you should only feed chicks new things if they had grit, but was the dirt and tiny pebbles in the earth good enough? I haven't noticed any signs of sickness or seen them acting weird. They are chirping happily and seem to be thriving. Any suggestions?      

 

Thanks!:D

Depends on your soil type if there's the right size grit.  If it's gravelly with sizes ranging all the way down to sand nearly, you're alright.
