I have week old chicks and have been feeding them small treats like pieces of boiled egg and such and just found out that I shouldn't be doing that unless they also have grit in their brooder to eat. I found posts on here describing a red "anise flavored" chick grit that is sold at TSC but my local TSC does not carry it or any other type of chick grit. I checked the other stores around here but they don't have anything like chick grit either. So then I started looking at parakeet and pigeon grit, but so far all the parakeet/pigeon grit I've found contains calcium or oyster shells which I've read should not be given to chicks. I have some all purpose sand available that I was thinking of using but I've read that it does not replace grit and will often cause crop problems...so I'm out of ideas! What do the rest of you use for grit for your chicks and where do you buy it from?
