    while free ranging, will they need grits/oyster shell?

    Only Southern chickens need grits. Just kidding! You mean grit, H. Freeranging chickens probably don't need the grit if they can find small rocks/pebbles/stones on their own. Oyster shell, maybe, but only for the laying hens after they start laying, not before.
