I have been tossing some gravel that is under the gravel in my driveway and some sand in my chicken yard. Since my birds are in a fenced in yard I am deciding on buying actual grit. My birds seem very healthy and are starting to lay a few eggs at age 20 weeks . I have 12 hens and one rooster now. They are on Layena feed , oyster shell in the yard, a few grubbies every other day. Just curious about the grit , sand , or gravel. Looking for input.
