Do I Need Grit?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Do I need grit for my 6 wk old chicks if they have access to a run.  The run is a portion of the lawn.  They have been wearing it down and there is portions of dirt, pebbles, etc.  Is there enough natural grit?  Thanks in advance!!

No they need feed it is what gives them there weight the stuff in the run is not enough for them.

The chickens will find their own grit in the dirt, I've never bought grit and my chicken free range. I let my chicks on dirt as soon as they hatch. To dust bath and find grit, no worries.
