    We have two four week old peking ducklings I read online that they should be given grit. Is this necessary We have very sandy soil (I"m talking beachfront) and they dig in the sand all the time I have been giving them greens and I don't want to have any problems. We do not give our chickens grit either and have had no problems (they are over 1 year old) Also can you give fthem scratch Thanks for any information Micki
