I posted this question is someone else's thread but can't remember which one now I have 3 week old chicks and was wondering if I could use sandbox sand " from the sandbox " as grit for the chicks and if so, how do you give this to them ? Also, I noticed that someone posted that you could pull a section of grass with the roots still attached ( cute the grass down but leave all the dirt on and let them use that for grit ?? Do you just pull it from the ground and than sit on bottom of brooder ?? Oh my word - thank you people..this site is awesome !
