So, my 6 chicks are 5 weeks old now and they're doing great. They're only getting organic chick mash since I can't find grit anywhere! I went yesterday to a farm store and they sold me dolomitic limestone and said I could use that as chick grit. Came home and read on the internet that that would kill them so naturally I didn't give them any. I did find a store that's an hour away that sells grit and I'm almost at the point where I'm going to throw all my kids in the car (3 under 3) and drive up there to get some. I really want to start introducing new foods but everything I read says don't do it without grit. If I were to put them out in the grassy yard, would they find some? Can I even put them in the yard on the grass without giving them any grit yet? This grit thing is making me a little nuts!
