    what is it and what does it do?
    what is the difference between grit and chick food or regular food?

    i think your chicks have to be on grit a while before you give them yogurt. i'm not sure but i think that's what it is.

    I doubt you HAVE to have grit just for yogurt. Grit is to help them crush food in their gizzard, yogurt doesn't need crushing.
