In the Brooder
- Apr 23, 2013
I'm new with chickens, so when I was reading information about raising chicks, it said that they need grit to help process they're food. I didn't realize that "Grit" and "Grits" were two completely different things, so I found our box of uncooked grits and gave some to them. (The chicks are only like 2 weeks old.) When I was reading other articles later on, they said that grit is really small pieces of stone, sand, and dirt. Even though I gave the chicks the wrong kind of grit, they really like the uncooked grits. When I offer the grits to them in my hand, they eat it all within seconds. Am I allowed to give it to them?
