    Is this an ok feed for chicks? I had to buy a large bag for my 4 guinea keets and dont want it to spoil or go to waste.. I cant feed it to my ducks, but ive got a ton of chicks due to hatch next week..
    What about for adult chickens?

    Thanks.

    It's a little rich for chicks if fed for long periods of time. For a few days to a couple of weeks it'll be alright.

    I typically mix gamebird starter in with the chick starter in a ratio of two parts chick starter to one part gamebird. That is my bird's every day feed. I get a nice size and good feather development.
