    I guess it is about time to start feeding my chicks some grit, isn't it?


    Will sand work?


    Or do I have to buy something special for them?
     

  2. I think sand will work. Grit is just little gravel.

    I start chick grit, when they start eating, i get the one from TSC for baby chicks, it has anise in it, which help sooth the tummy and digestive,
    and i haven't had any poop problems since i have been doing this
