I want to start feeding my 2 week old RIRs treats, but I am having a hard time tracking down grit for chicks. I found one place online, but they want $16.00 for shipping on a $7 bag. Seems kinda steep. Someone told me I could use sand as grit, but I didn't want to test that theory until I heard from someone else.
Has anyone had luck finding chick grit at actual stores (I live in Boulder, Colorado)?
Has anyone heard of using sand as baby chick grit?
Thanks in advance,
