    I received my order from Ideal through my local feed store today . It is my first! I am so excited because they all seem to be doing so well. He gave me GrogelPlus B to add to water and he said to give that in their water for 2 weeks. Has anyone else used this? Also, when do you add grit to their diet? If I add it to their crumbles what is the ratio?

    You dont really need to give grit until you give scratch or a grain alone. I just give mine free choice. What kinda chicks did you get?
