We're still newbies, our chicks are now about 3 months old. The only grit I have had experience with so far, was a box of parakeet grit that we got when we first started them on grit. So I just bought our first bag from our local feed store. The bag simply says poultry grit, but this stuff bears absolutely no similarity to the parakeet grit. First it is moist, it smells and looks a lot like dirt with chunks of ?/something, I really have no idea what, in it. There is nothing in it resembling sand either. I expected something coarser and larger than parakeet grit, but this stuff just looks weird. Its very brown. Should grit be this damp and dirt-smelling? Did I just get a bad bag? I bet someone is laughing at me by now. Please advise.
