New chicks

glad you have joined us and congrats on getting your new flock.

IMO I would honor the chick grits directions. Personally I added small amounts to their feed about 2 weeks old when I started giving mine a few dried mealie worms. If they have only chick starter then they don't need grit to digest it. If you start to give any chick appropriate treats, then you will need to give them grit.
Treats shouldn't make up more than 10% of their food, chicks can get spoiled as fast as kids with candy. Then they don't want to eat their nutritionally balanced feed. and growth and health can eventually suffer.
