I bought some of the fine indoor bird grit at Wally World and put it in a free choice container. I have some birds that have to be older than some others, some are puff balls and others are much larger and very feathered. I decided to add some fresh veggies diced up on the menu.

They have enjoyed that thoroughly!
I read here if you start anything other than chick starter add grit.
Well, I have 77 peepers and they have gone through the whole box in two days!
Is that normal?

I thought they would peck just what they needed. I'm hoping they didn't just gorge themselves on it thinking it's just lousy tasting food.

Will that hurt them?

Should I back off and not offer more till they un-stuff their crops and just give them the veggies??

when I have an over
abundance of eggs I hard boil cool them
and put into a plastic bag and rol
l the to a fine crush with a rolling pin.
I feel this gives them grit and calcium.
Idont buy grit.also a few handfulls of fine gravel
from the driveway tossed into their coop.
once in a while.
alls well that ends well.
Have never lost a one.
