A good crumble starter feed is essential because it provides your chicks with the nutrients they need. They will also need starter grit to help them chew their feed because chickens do not have teeth, grit helps them break down the food in their gullet so that it is digested more easily. You also need to make sure they have fresh clean water. Vitamins and electrolytes will give your chicks an added boost to supplement their feed making them stronger and healthier.

Why baby chick grit is important
Chickens do not have teeth so it is important to provide grit with their feed because it helps them to grind and digest it easier. Chick grit is ground much finer than grit made for adult chickens which is important because baby chicks can be injured if their feed or grit is too large. Larger feed and grit can actually get stuck in their neck or craw and even tear through their tender skin which can make them sick or even kill them.
But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew [their] strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; they shall walk, and not faint. Isa. 40:31
Why Electrolytes are important for your baby chicks development
