Now that my chicks have been outside all afternoon, my dad has told me to watch them because they will get diarrhea from eating the grass. It this true?
I don't need any pasty butts!

I guess any change in diet can give a temporary digestive upset, but they should make the transition ok, as the bulk of what they eat will still be the starter ration.

Give them grit.
