    At five weeks old, they can have lots of things. Try soft foods like lettuce, cooked oatmeal, cooked shredded carrots, plain yogurt, bananas.

    Just make sure you supply grit so they can digest or you will have impacted crop issues...

    If you're feeding then boiled veggies and oatmeal, I wouldn't worry about grit for their crops too much. Could be a big difference when or if you let them free range.
    Clean white aquarium gravel comes to mind for grit. Appropriate sizes of course.
