My 5 week olds go nuts and dust bathe in their chick grit. Should I put it in a smaller dish so they are only eating it? Or is it okay?

What are you using as a substrate? It looks like they are being brooded without any bedding. They might not dust bathe in their grit if they had a substrate they could bathe in...sand, pelletized bedding, or a designated dust bath.

In the pic they were just on top of the brooder while I was cleaning. I use hemp bedding. I’ll try setting up a designated dust bath and moving the grit to a smaller dish.
