Starter Grit



Suitable for:

  • Chicken 0-8 Weeks
  • Duck 0-8 Weeks
Starter Grit is perfect for chick-sized beaks. 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.
