    This pic is just an example that I found at walmart but my local feed store also has 10lb bags similar to this containing peanuts, sunflower seeds and other assorted nuts and seeds for a fraction of the price of what the bags labeled for chickens go for.

    For example, a 2lb bag of Hentastic treats is $10 whereas a 10lb bag of what is labeled as guinea pig food is the same price. The contents look very similar.

    Here is the walmart bag label:

    This bag was $8

    It would be good as a treat, only.

    Yes. I should have specified that. This would be in addition to regular food.
