    Will any old sand work for grit, like outta the back yard, this is Florida, I have lots of sand. I've gone to a couple of feed stores and no one seems to have grit for chicks ( my chicks a 4 weeks old). I'm going to have to get them out of the shop pretty soon, they are gettin big. Plus they are getting tired of the small brooder box.

    Yes but once they get to about 6-8 weeks and are ready to go outside then switch over to pebbles.
    Hope this help QP
