Layer Grit



Suitable for:

  • Chicken 20+ Weeks
  • Duck 20+ Weeks
Layer Grit is perfect for most full-grown birds. Birds lack that great grind we get with teeth, so they need some mechanism to break down food. Grit in the gizzard is how our feathered friends “chew.” The key is matching the correct grit size to the size of your birds. Think Goldilocks, not too big and not too small. Just right.

Additional Notes
  • Birds self-regulate grit consumption.
  • For bantams or smaller hens, layer grit may be too large. These birds can remain on Grower Grit indefinitely.
