    Does anyone know if the coral used in the bottom of fish tanks would be okay to use as "grit" for chickens? We had a fish tank and still have the coral hanging around. Was hoping to wash , crush it up a bit and give it to the chickens.

    Don't know about grit (should work) but crushed coral is made of the same compounds as oyster shell so it could replace them I would assume.
