Feeding wild birds grit- helps digestion

Posted by British Bird Food 16/07/2013 0 Comment(s)
It seems quite unusual to us humans that we might want to eat shells and stones, but to Wild birds it is an essential part of their diet. Garden birds need a certain amount of wild bird grit in order to help digestion and take on board calcium to strengthen their egg shells. Just a teaspoon in a feeder mix of wild bird food will suffice to keep your garden visitors in good shape. Sea shells and Limestone for calcium, Charcoal to sweeten their crop and Flint grit to aid digestion, these are all in our own wild bird grit mix.
