    When feeding baby chicks poultry grit can you "overdose"? Or can you feed them ample poultry grit?

    When feeding chicks grit, just put out a shallow container of chick grit. They will regulate themselves, so no, you can't overdose. Just refill it when the container becomes empty. (They will scratch it out, so don't put too much in at a time. It waists grit)
