So My chicks are about 3 weeks old-ish. They vary because one is a bit younger but feisty and doing very well! (and a bantam!).
I started grinding their food in my VitaMix because I bought them Organic food which was not very small and dedicated to chicks. They seem to like it and I mix it with the full size since some of the Pullets are getting a bit big.
I fed them some small crickets and a few worms from our organic garden today and I thought it might be wise to start including some grit. I bought Grit from my local feedstore, but noticed the pebbles were all too large for at least the two Bantams mouths, and pushing it for the rest. I grinded this as well in the VitaMix. I just mixed about a 1/2 to 1 cup into a large serving bowl of ground/unground organic food.
Does all this sound right? Is it a problem if the grit has been ground too much? Like a powder?
Thanks again all,
