    Mine were eating treats at 2weeks. A mother hen would have them out scratching around much younger.
    Yes, give them grit if you give them treats.

    Quote:Oh, those poor babies. [​IMG] You're going to make them wait that long? [​IMG] Be a nice parent and dig up some tiny grit from the back yard, wash it in a strainer in the sink, and sprinkle some flavoring on it to make it taste like something other than a tiny rock. That's what my wife would do. [​IMG]
