Used for succulent mix. Had used Manna Pro before.. this is more aesthetically pleasing while also being closer in size to the turface I was using, so the entire mix is much more consistent.
Time will tell, in terms of whether he continues to digest his food well, but he's been on it for a couple of days and so far so good.
Because he's a drake, (male duck), he shouldn't have all the calcium that any egg-laying female should have. This grit is good for drakes, and females who aren't laying any eggs, because it has no added source of calcium (like oyster shell).
So my duck can get the grit he needs without having to ingest more calcium than is good for him.
I also appreciate that it doesn't have any other additives like some of the other grits have in them -- such as vegetable oil or probiotics. He gets healthy fats and probiotics in his food, anyway, which is also from Scratch and Peck, and which I believe to be an excellent quality food.
In the ingredients of some of the other grits on the market, they just list "vegetable oil". No telling what kind, what quality. Plus, oil goes rancid, and grit may be stored for quite a while.
I'd rather my duck gets his oils and probiotics from a high-quality food which has not been stored longer than is advisable, (as well as from all the "free ranging" bugs he can eat, and from all that dabbling in the mud, which has *got* to be providing some soil-based probiotics... )
These are for custom potting soil blends, so I will have to report back later on "quality" as far as plants and drainage are concerned. The size of the grower grit was more consistent than Manna Pro and slightly smaller on average. If you are after quantity and don't care about color (Manna Pro is more of a grey-blue-pink), you will get a bigger bang for your buck with that product and are probably be better off ordering directly from Tractor Supply Co. Even with shipping cost, the per-bag total is less than it is on here... and if you order two or more bags at once, you'll save a pretty penny.
UPDATE: The white grower grit doesn't look great after a while if you're using it as a top dressing for potted plants. Also, I purchased another bag of Manna Pro, and it was a much finer grain than my original purchase, more on par with this chick grit.
I wanted it to make 'gritty mix' for my succulents and this size is a little big for that - most pieces sized 1/4-1/2 inch, with a few a bit smaller. I would purchase from this supplier again but for gritty mix, go for 'grower size' rather than this 'layer size'.
