Grit is stored in the ventriculus, or gizzard, which is the part of the digestive tract that mechanically breaks down food and aids in the grinding of food particles. Consequently, Grit is an important part of poultry diets because it will help your birds get the most nutrition out of their feed.
Grit should be provided free choice to allow birds to self-regulate their intake to best suit their individual needs.
Starter Grit is the perfect size of crushed granite for chicks. It even helps prevent digestive upset.
