Hello! You can start giving grit right away, but start easy. Sprinkle just a few granules on their feed the first day, a little more the next day, and after a week you should be able to allow them free choice.

You can put them on range as long as they are kept dry. At 1 1/2 weeks, as long as they don't get wet and can get back under a heat lamp when they want, they will enjoy exploring outside.

You can start to provide treats, chopped up small enough for them to enjoy. Just make it a small part of their diet until they are about eight weeks old.

Good luck, and welcome!
