large crop in my chick(5 posts)
Hi Jo ,you can give them grit at any time ,sometimes included in the feed but never the less it doesn't hurt to provide it ad lib .A chicks crop full is a good sign ,greedy guts .lol MamaGoose Girl
should it say on the bag of the chick crumb? if so would it say grit or does it have another name?
Thanks Mama xJo
Jo it depends what make of chick crumb you have but think its best to buy a bag of the special chicken grit, it will be for sale where ever you buy your food frommo x
i buy the small holder range baby chick crumb. may give them a call and ask if theres grit in it.Jo
