    Hi just curious, I bought some domestic bird grit ( b/c I'm out of regular, and can't go until tomorrow afternoon to get more). The kind I bought is granite, mixed with calcium, charcoal, and anise oil. It's meant for cockatiels, parakeets and such. Is this ok for hens?

    TSC chick grit has anise oil. It's fine.

    I read anise is an appetite stimulator and is attractive to birds. Your chickens might love it!
