Source for chicken grit in BC

Submitted by: DS

With the demise of Imasco many feed stores are not carrying granite chicken grit useful for alpine plant seeds and top dressing. A new source is Westway Feed in Delta. It is a very funky store and well worth a visit but call ahead 604-590-9355 to make sure they have the right size in stock.  I prefer #2 size which is about 1/8 inch diameter.image.jpeg
