Chicken grit vs. Turkey grit for 'gritty mix'
Hi again everyone,
Well, looks so far like I can get everything I need for the "gritty mix" at our local Agway, but the Agway closest to me only seems to carry this product called "Manna Pro Poultry Grit" instead of Gran-i-grit. There is a picture of a chicken on the package. The bag says it's "Insoluble crushed granite for all classes of poultry", but it's hard to tell without opening the package how big the grit particles are. The particles should be like 3/32 to 3/16 of an inch, right? I figure chicken grit may be smaller than turkey grit.
How much does it matter if the grit particles are smaller than 3/32 to 3/16? If the grit particles are on the small side, should I use this chicken grit combined with some pearlite to get some larger particles in the mix?
There's an Agway much farther away from us that does carry the Gran-i-grit. Is it worth it to drive all the way there?
Thanks in advance!
