    i have a little section in the brooder with sand and dirt for my gosling and chicks to get grit and the chicks to take dust baths in. the chicks will sometimes eat the dirt but the gosling sits their shoveling it all into her mouth. i would guess she eats just as much of the dirt as she does of her feed. is this ok for her?

    It's fine. It'll pass anything it doesn't use in the gizzard.
