Hi! A friend bought these for my 2 week and 5 week old chicks. Can they have these treats yet? Along with grit?

I wouldn't give it to the young ones yet, and I would limit the amount given to the older ones. Up until 8-12 weeks it's important chicks eat a good starter in order to not develop deficiencies. You don't need them filling up on extras. After 3 months I start adding other stuff. The only extra thing I give to younger chicks is some scrambled eggs as they contain many things a growing chick needs.
