    At what age can chicks start getting scratch grains etc? Seems to me they are ready at 12 weeks but wanted to make sure... Thanks

    I'm far from an expert, but I have a grain farm, so mine get lots of grain thrown in the run, from as early as 3 weeks they were eating whole kernel corn, heritage types, red and blue corn, not junk yellow GMO corn. Take that for what it's worth.
