No gravel or grit should be fed to any psittacine (parrots) or
passerine (canaries, finches, starlings, mynahs) birds.
They do Not need it as they Hull their seeds Which is why you
see tons of seed shells.
For coves pigeons chickens those type birds They need it to
help as they do not hull their seeds.
When I worked as a Vet tech I can not tell you how many issues
I seen with either grit or that bird litter stuff(walnut
shells etc) they sell that had eaten it and it had impacted
there are some great articles online at Birds n ways
hope this helps
