    So, I'm stumped.

    My chicks are about a week and a half old. I was just wondering when i should start feeding them grit?

    If you are feeding just crumbles (starter/grower) then you do not need to give them grit. when you start giving them other treats such as corn they will need grit to digest thier food.
