will my chickens get enough grit from the yard that I don't need to provide it to them? They are about 9 weeks old and in the yard all day long

It does depend on the type of soil you have, and if it has small rocks that are hard enough to work as grit. In some areas it would be worth it to buy a bag of grit every once in a while. It's pretty cheap and they don't eat that much.

I would use pea gravel as grit once or twice a week when my chickens would free range
