    I have 5 week old ducklings that have access to grass most of the day. They do dig in the dirt, my question is do I still need to provide grit for them and if so what do I give them? Thanks in advance :)

    [​IMG] . Are they just eating grass and Chick starter all day or are they given treats as well?

    They get chick starter 4 times a day and they are on grass most of the day.

    In that case I personally would not supplement grit unless they are showing sign of digestion issues
