do chickens need grit when they are being fed crumble?
I think they need grit if they get anything in addition to the store bought chicken feed.
If all they are eating is 100% crumbles? No. If they are fed grains and other harder to digest things? Yes. They can also get grit naturally by pecking pebbles and tiny rocks in the yard or driveway.
if they free range, or have anything other then their food to eat than I would give them grit. but if you live in a rocky area, then they should be able find their own
Grit? Can this be purchased? Found in the garden? Is it coarse soil?
Its just little rocks. Can be found almost anywhere. If they have access to the ground they will find their own.
