    I gave my chick some minced up strawberry and now his crop is large. I didn't give him grit. I thought the strawberry pieces were tiny and soft. He is acting normal. Please tell me I didn't kill my baby! If I get him some grit tomorrow will that be soon enough?

    Not sure on how quick he'll need it. If he's been outside foraging chances are he's picked up some small pebbles for grit. I would definitely get him some though, it's cheap.
