Chicken Scratch

Chickens are compelled to scratch at the ground. They use their toes to mix up litter or scrape the ground in search of various seeds, greens, grit, or insects to eat. Spreading scratch grains (cracked, rolled, or whole grains such as corn, barley, oats, or wheat) encourages this behavior. 

~Organic Varieties Available

Chicken Grit 

In the wild, or when chickens free-range, they take in tiny bits of stone and gravel as they forage on the ground. 

 

Depending on the type of ground, though, your poultry may not get enough to be able properly to digest their food, and that's when they need to be given extra

There are different grades (sizes) of grit depending on the age of chicken; as they get older the mix should become more coarse.

Oyster Shells

Don't confuse oyster shell with grit.  Grit is insoluble.  It stays in the gizzard and it's used to grind food.  Oyster shell dissolves in the gut and its job is to add calcium to the diet of laying hens.​
