The Nutrena Naturewise Poultry Grit was made with your chickens in mind. Created with the particles of crushed granite, you can be sure this grit will work well for any flock of foraging poultry.
Nutrena Naturewise Poultry Grit Features
With all natural ingredients, this grit is ideal for any of the following species and more:
Nutrena's natural formula supports digestion of healthy nutrients found in chicken grain. Without grit, the birds would not be able to digest the delicious grains set out for them.
Grit is made with small and medium size particles to better accommodate small and large birds within the flock.
This item is also a free choice supplement. You do not have to worry whether or not your chickens finish all of it, or get their own share. Let them choose, and they can determine the amount of grit they need, based on the amount of food an individual bird eats.
Chickens and other common poultry do not have teeth. If you watch the flock closely, you will notice they tip their heads back and shake down their food. For animals that do not chew, it is difficult to digest food. These birds have a gizzard, however, which is a strong muscle used to grind up food for simpler digestion. This muscle requires hard particles to be included in the food mix to better grind up the food before digestion.
