    Do I need to add grit or anything to baby chickens feed? I am feeding them chick starter now but that is it. I am new at having chickens so any help is appreciated.

    Nope, the starter is a complete ration. It has everything they need. You can also feed other SOFT foods without grit (boiled/scrambled egg, yogurt, bananas). Think of it this way, if its a food that you yourself would have to chew- they'll need to chew it too. Good luck!
