We recommend Chick Grit from hatching to 8 weeks, with Grower Grit being the appropriate size from 8 weeks to 20 weeks, and Layer Grit for all laying hens. Broilers should switch directly from the Chick Grit to the Layer Grit at 4 weeks of age.
A required feeding supplement, Cluckin’ Good Poultry Grit is necessary for the healthy development of a chicken’s gizzard. The gizzard aids in digestion, and allows for maximum nutrient benefits from poultry feed. Made up of insoluble crushed quartzite or granite, grit remains in the bird’s gizzard to help with digestion. Grit is an essential part of your bird’s diet and should always be provided, especially if there is no access to small rocks.
Layer chicks from day 1 through 8 weeks of age.
Broiler chicks from day 1 to 4 weeks of age.
