K, we are knew to the whole chicken thing.... I was wondering what exactly "grit" is. My chicks are 3 weeks old, I have been given them dirt out of the yard, is this enough and ok? Would grit be better? Also, I have some that are getting pecked at, chicks are pulling out tail feathers on others and are bleeding, I have cleaned up the blood and put antibiotic ointment on them. They are getting starter feed, electrolytes in water and yogurt as a treat along with hard boiled eggs. ugh, they are naughty!! Any help would be great!!
