Grass for chicks

Just wondering if u should put some grass in the brooder for chicks

Depends on age. I have mine outside under a hen after hatching in an incubator,two weeks old now and started giving them some chickweed after a week. Grass fed in a brooder might cause crop problems especially if they have no access to small chick grit.

The chicks have no grit and are 2 and a half weeks old

I would say then don,t feed them grass unless they have access to small chick grit,you can get it in almost any pet shop.
