    My chicks are almost 3 weeks old. They are eating medicated chick starter. I am hoping to take them outside soon to peck around in a small enclosed grassy area for short amount of time, since they may find some bugs and grass I began to consider chick grit.

    When do I need to start offering chick grit?

    Also is it okay to offer them yogurt now?

    thank you

    They don't need extra grit. If they peck and eat grass and bugs they will eat the bits of rock and dirt in the yard for grit.
