    They don't need grit as long as they are only eating chick starter. I generally just keep feed in front of chicks at all times.

    I am using grit now, but mine are out in the chicken tractor, (four weeks old). I think you should use grit anytime the chicks are allowed to start eating extras like worms, bugs, grass, etc.
