You can feed them scratch grain but only if you have grit for them.
The difference is that scratch grain usually has, cracked corn, oats and wheat and cracked corn is cracked corn.

What if they have access to dirt where they can scratch for rocks and such? They're also still on chick starter crumbles.

Scratch grains sounds more tasty. I was going to try and use it to train them up the ramp and into the coop. Don't really know if that'll work!

The best thing is grit if your feeding scratch, but I think it'd be OK to give it to them.
Glad you asked that, my Bantams are the same age and was also wondering if too early for scratch. And, when, do we change from chick starter?
You can change from chick starter to chick grower by now unless you have chick starter/grower mix. It usually says on the bag when to switch to layer or all flock pellets.
