    Yes i started feeding mine other things at about 4 days a broody starts them early. Just make sure they have grit available.

    Yes, as stated if they were with momma hen they'd be eating lots of different things. A little bit of grit to help grind things up is always good, but other than that you'd be surprised what they can tear apart at this age!

    Some mama hens are already weaning chicks at four weeks old. They can eat whatever an adult hen can eat.
