So I realized today that the parakeet grit I bought the other day has calcium in it. So I went to the feed and hardware store to buy sand for the chicks. Both men at the feed store insisted that I do not need grit or sand for my chicks. Both raise chickens and currently have chicks in brooders and neither have never used grit in their brooders. I went over to the hardware store and asked about sand I could use. And the guy who helped me out there also insisted that I do not need grit in my brooder. Everyone here has me in such a panic that my chicks will die without it. WTH do I do? I feel like I have over researched to be honest.
