    My 2 little chicks cleaned up their food quicker than I figured. Do you think they will be ok til tomorrow, or do I need to come up with something tonight? Nothing is open, so what are my options? Thanks everyone.

    Will they need grit with that?

    They don't need grit with hard boiled eggs. Soft foods don't need the grinding action.

    You really don't need extra grit with chick starter either. It has it in it already.

    If you have grass, they'll eat that. Also cooked oatmeal, cream of wheat etc. will do too.

    When I first saw that some folks give their chicks hard boiled eggs, it was kind of freaky to me. Kind of like cannibalism... I know it's really not, but it sounded kind of funny.
