What is poultry grit?

Your chickens need insoluble grit to aid digestion.


As they have no teeth (as rare as hens teeth?) they use small bits of grit and stone to grind up their food before they can digest it. If they free range they may find enough but if they are in a chicken pen, especially with a litter base they may need extra in the form of poultry grit.

Your hens also need a supply of soluble calcium


Your hens also need a supply of soluble calcium in the form of oyster shell or limestone flour. This helps to maintain the strength of the egg shells. Some feeds may already contain this supplement but if not, or your hens lay soft shelled eggs then they may benefit from some extra.

Chick Grit and Flint Hen grit are pure flint grits, sized to suit.
Crushed oyster shell is pieces of oyster shell.
Limestone flour is finely ground limestone.
Mixed poultry grit is a blend of flint hen grit and crushed oyster shell
