    My new coop and run sit on a mostly gravel area with wild strawberries growing there also. Is either of these things a problem for 6-8 week old chicks?

    The strawberries won't last long! But they are not a problem. Some on here let chickens get their grit from gravel driveways. Don't see why it would be a problem unless it has vary sharp edges. Maybe just check their feet for injury.
