Mixed Poultry Grit
Mixed Poultry Grit - 1.5kg pouch, 5kg bag or 25kg sack. An all-in-one Grit for all kinds of laying birds.
You may have heard - hen's teeth are rare! Very rare, because of course they simply don't have any, therefore, they need a supply of small stone fragments (preferably flint, an insoluble grit, because it is sharp) to grind down their food which they do using the gizzard.READ MORE
The 'all-in-one' mixed grit and oyster shell for poultry available in 1.5kg, 5kg or 25kg sizes.
If your birds are free ranging and forage far and wide they will probably pick up enough grit but if confined they would need a supply. This you can give by scattering them on the ground or putting in a small grit feeder hung on their run. Oystershell is necessary (a soluble grit) to help poultry get a plentiful supply of calcium which they need to produce good egg shells.
Poultry should have free access to flint grit and oystershell, especially if they are confined in a run or indoors. The small particles of Flint Grit aids their digestion because it acts as the hens 'teeth' in the crop so the gizzard can grind up the food. Oyster Shell will help the hens to form good shells on their eggs and supplies them with a natural source of calcium.
