    Hi again!

    I'm trying to piece together all the information I'm seeing about treats and grit. If I was to give my little almost 2 weekers a little yogurt on my fingers to try and establish a relationship with them does that mean I need to start giving them grit? I bought poultry grit instead of chick grit because I didn't see any for chicks. Is that OK to give them now?

    Nah, no need to give them grit just for yogurt. They will digest this just fine.

    I found chick grit at Tractor Supply, and I will be giving it to mine when they go outside, probably mixed with regular grit so they can choose the size they can swallow. I do this for my bantam hens as well.

    BTW fzouk, I am just getting back online . . . I'm in the middle of another hatch. I will answer your e-mails! [​IMG]
