    They have had chick grit but they grow so much faster so I don't know if they should be switched over to the adult grit now? I mean my Pekin is huge compared to my little chicks :)

    I used the chick grit even when my ducks were grown. By then I only needed it in winter when they could not drill in the frozen soil.

    Thanks Amiga. I'm guessing they get more natural grit than chickens judging by the mouthfuls of dirt I see :)
