    I have two
    1-week old Jersey giants
    and
    2-week old --2-Buffs and 2 Easter eggers

    there in a 3x5 trunk

    Im feeding them the chick-feed, its non medicated,

    do i need medicated?

    should i put in a small tub of dirt?

    when do i give them Grit?

    when should i give them chopped up eggs and what else? strawberry tops?

    thank you

    Oh, if you mix in a bit of builder's sand (not play sand) in with your container of dirt, that will take care of the grit component as well as the dust-bath.
