I've got four 10-week old pullets and I just ran out of their baby-grit. They're housed in a coop at night but are in a 10x10 area outside all day. The outdoor run is dirt (i turn it over occassionally so it doesn't hardpan) with some sand on one end.
What I'm wondering is if I need to supply them with grit since they're out pecking in that dirt all day? I don't feed them a ton of table scraps (they don't seem to be very interested) so they mostly eat feed and whatever they find in the ground.
Do I need to buy more grit and keep them stocked? Or, is what they pick up in the run (and the sand) good enough?
Any advice would be great, thanks!
