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

    Grit is crushed stone to help digest their food. TSC sells chick grit for chicks [​IMG]

    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.
