My chickens are pecking at rocks; does these mean anything?


My 3 chicks have a big lot but they have dug at it pretty good, is it possible they have gotten all the grit or whatever it is they need for digestion is why they are really pecking away at a couple of rocks?

    Well John I bought them some grit but I read somewhere if they had access to dirt to not give it to them, so is why I am asking. They dig daylights out of the lot. I don't know if one will let me feel its neck or not but I will try. Thanks so much!

    They are making dust of what they are pecking away looks to me like. Can the rock hurt them? I guess it is like calcium? They are really plump and healthy looking.
