Is it normal to have fresh undigested grass in droppings? This is within about two hours of them being out and eating grass.

Provide some insoluble grit / coarse sand

Keep an eye on the chicken and if it looks a little funny or the droppings get runny start by treating for worms (could be slight irritation in the digestive tract leading to the grass being passed quickly)
