I have a new batch of chicks, between 5 and 7 weeks old. I pieced the flock together over a couple week period.

My question is: because they are not free ranging just yet, do I need to give them chick grit before giving them treats like strawberries, lettuce, or tomatoes?

So far all I have fed them is chick starter crumbles and a little dried oregano, when someone had a little diarrhea.

Your help is appreciated.

Yupp! If your feeding them anything other than their regular feed, they need grit. I reccomend chick grit though (it's smaller) instead of adult poultry grit.
