Can I feed sprouts to my chicks?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My husband brought this home from work yesterday. My chicks are about three weeks old. Can I offer them these sprouts? And if I do, do I need to offer grit? They are on a starter grower, no grit yet still in the brooder.

No. Grit is needed for hard foods to help break it up as chickens do not have teeth.They are on a starter grower, no grit yet still in the brooder.
