    IMO, no, I just throw some on the ground every now and then. Gives the chickens something to do, LOL

    OOPS!!! Chicks don't need grit if they're only getting starter/grower crumbles. It doesn't need grit to be digested. When they are about 6 weeks old or so, and can eat other goodies, then it's time.
