The use of grit is an option that each individual bird owner can decide for themselves.
Birds in the wild have used gravel as a digestive aid since the beginning of time. Keeping this in mind, I would much rather give my bird grit even if it turned out that they do not need it, rather than to find out later that they did need it.
Offer small amounts occasionally. Birds that hull their seeds do not need grit as much as birds that do not hull their seeds, but it still will aid in their digestion. Grit cannot hurt your bird if given in small amounts. Do not forget that when you do offer bird grit, just keep a close eye on any signs of over eating the grit. Nature tells a bird how much grit it needs. So over eating it is not always normal. A sick bird will automatically start to over eat grit. If your bird over eats his/her grit, then as a safe precaution, have the vet examine your bird. If an expecting mother over eats her grit, this does not mean that she may be ill. It is only natural for an expectant mother to stock up on grit for that long nesting period in her nest box. Grit will not hurt them. The only problem with grit is that on occasion a bird may over eat it, which sometimes causes the grit to impact itself.
