    Do chickens need grit like pigeons if they never get to the ground?

    Depends on what's in your yard.

    If you're like us and have absolutely nothing grit-like in your yard, feedstore grit is cheap. I offer it free choice. If they like what they find in the yard - fine, but at least I know they do have some.

    Is the grit the same for pigeons as for chickens?
