    I will assume that for both of you, the chicks are NOT eating in such quantities that impaction becomes an issue.

    With that being said, as long as chicks have access to grit they should be fine. With chick feed their little gizzards can easily break that material down before passing it along through the digestive tract.

    But the items that you've both mentioned...let the chicks have access to chick grit. Older birds, fully feathered birds that are allowed to free range will pick up all the grit that they need.

    The fried Okra and the Squash...those birds are going to be Happy, Happy, Happy! [​IMG]
