    After doing so much reasearch and reading on here, and realizing that chickens need grit, I am wondering: do ducks need grit?? I don't remember this last time we had ducks.
    Thanks!

    Yeah, it is beneficial for them. I just scatter some sand and tiny pebbles around in my duck pen every now and then.

    Yes...If it has a gizzard it needs grit...I just mix a small amount in there feed dish and they pick up small rocks when they are picking through the yard also!
