It's in the Bibliography of Grit book listed in post 1.
Thanks! Will have a look at that.
I find that bill board traps, with the type of plastic they are -far out last even heavy duty tarps-by years, you do have to install your own grommets, but it's been worth it.
Does anyone else have thoughts on this? I know that it is easy to build something that takes up little space in the coop, but if this would help the chickens move around the litter then it sounds like a win! Especially in cold climates where the ground freezes thereby making it hard for them to find grit in the winter.
Well, that's where chickens find it out on the land...no dishes there. When I do go out of my way to get any grit of any kind, I just dump it on the ground outside the coop door and let them sort it out.
Thanks! That was what I was thinking but have heard different thoughts. Glad to hear it will work out and I won't need to make any coop modifications!
Wow that is amazing. I cant tell you how much i am learning. I really want to give these little chics the best chance for a healthy and happy life. I am raising them to be layers as my family and i love to eat eggs. So this information is very interesting and should be very helpful. Thank you and God Bless
Good info here. Could you maybe explain to me what insoluable grit means/is. Im new to all of this and trying to do right by these chics
"Insoluble" means the grit is not digestible.
