Product Description

Grit is necessary for the healthy development of a chicken’s gizzard. The gizzard aids in digestion, and allows for maximum nutrient benefit from whole grain feeds.

Made up of insoluble crushed rock, grit remains in the bird’s gizzard to help with digestion. An essential part of your bird’s diet, grit should always be provided, especially if there is no access to small, sharp rocks (like a gravel driveway).

We recommend Cluckin’ Good Layer Grit from 20 weeks on. Broilers should switch directly from the Chick Grit to the Layer Grit at 4 weeks of age.

If you have bantams or smaller hens, our Cluckin’ Good Layer Grit may be too large for their size, so you may want to continue to provide them with Cluckin’ Good Grower Grit.

We suggest offering Layer Grit either free choice in a separate dish or tossing on the ground in their coop area to encourage natural scratching behavior. The birds will self-regulate and take what they need.

If my flock is free range, do I still need to offer grit?
Yes. Ensuring that your chickens have enough access to an appropriately sized grit is difficult to assess. We recommend putting out a dish of grit near their feeder or mixed in with their feed to determine if they eat it or leave it. If they don’t consume the grit then they are most likely receiving an adequate amount from the soil. We recommend offering grit as a supplement to ensure they always have access.
The grit looks too big! Should I get a smaller size?
No. The larger size is fine as it will be ground down in the gizzard. Only switch to a smaller size if your birds are not consuming any of the larger grit. Some breeds are smaller than others and may need to stay with Grower Grit.
How is Cluckin' Good Grit different from Cluckin' Good Oyster Shell?
Grit is intended to build up in the gizzard and grind food as it passes through. Oyster Shell is intended to be broken down quickly and digested to allow for calcium absorption and egg shell strength. Wait until your hens are laying or nearly laying to offer Cluckin’ Good Oyster Shell.
