    you can start giving them grit now. you don't need to give them grit if they are only eating their chick feed. it's when they are eating fruit, greens, or eggs etc that you need to make sure they have grit in their too.

    also if they are taking daily field trips outside on dirt then they will pick it up there on their own.
