I have a guniea growing up with some chicks and was wondering if he could be fed chick grower with the chicks so that I don't have to divide up their food. They are just coming off chick starter now.

It can eat it but it is not good for it. Chick starter does not have the higher amounts of lysine, methionine, niacin and protein that keets need for proper development. Although I prefer not to brood keets with chicks due to the problems that imprinting causes later on, when I do brood keets with chicks, they all get the 28% protein turkey or game bird starter that the keets need. The high protein feed is not harmful to the chicks, but chick starter is harmful to the proper development of keets.
