Thanks for the advice. I'll do what I can to pick those up from the store after work tomorrow.
I understand the notion of overfeeding protein but I've never actually seen any real world damage to birds from feeding a high level of protein. Calcium, certainly, but not protein. I know of breeders who had fed in such a way for many years on with no issues. I have seen none to be sure. I would likely have them on an 18% mix if I could find a wheat-based one, if only for the cheaper cost, but even then my bantam pen doubles as a grow out pen, so I frequently have young turkeys and guineas living there anyways - and they do require a high level of protein even as adults.
And this one shows the very graphic results of gout.
