    I got a 50lbs bag of chick starter for 25 chicks I just received. Is that all that they need, or do I need to give them something for their gizzards to help digestion? Thanks in advance.

    Chick starter is all they need but a little chick grit might be good for them. Have fun raising your fuzzies!

    Sand should be okay.

    I got 20 RIR's, 5 White Rocks and one mystery chick. I still haven't figured out what type it is.
