    i was just wondering how old do chicks have to be to have the grit that adult hens have.
    someone suggested using sand at 3 weeks so i could give grain aswell as the mother hen is just eating chick starter crumbs with the chicks.
    plus the odd snail that has the misfortune of crossing her path.
