I just got my first chickens yesterday, almost 7 months, and only 1 has been laying. This is the feed i got from a local farm - what else should i add? They are buff btw. Though im pretty sure they are crosses, as they have yellow legs. TIA!

Grit is needed if you feed anything other than a poultry ration. So technically yes.
I personally provide grit in a separate dish as well, they will take what they need. It is usually made of crushed granite and is used to grind foods for easier digestion. If you give them treats (corn, veggies, fruit, mealworms, sunflowerseeds, grass, weeds, etc.) they will need grit.
