“Hello, Should all birds have grit included in their diet? Andy”
“Hi Andy, Grit is only necessary for soft billed birds like canaries, finches & doves that are unable to crack open seeds with their beaks. “Hookbills” are able to remove shells from seeds and the rest of the mechanical digestions are finished in the gizzard.
