    Hi all:) I'm sure it has been asked b4 but I think I have adhd or something, because every time I start to look for something..I get side tracked and wind up totally forgetting what I was looking for in the first place:). So anyway...do I still have to give my 2 month old chickens 'grit' since they are now 'free range'?

    If they are free ranging in an area where they get plenty of sand and gravel they should be fine.

    Mine free range and im sure they get most of their grit that way but i also keep creek gravel in a container inside the run. They still peck at that grit when they are in the run.
