    What is a good feed that's not to expensive. Also how often should I feed it to the guinea fowl.

    You can go to like Tractor Supply or Rural King and there should be either guinea food or you could just use chicken food.

    It all depends on what age the guineas are. If you are getting keets, they require a high protein feed such as turkey or game bird starter that usually has 28% to 30% protein. Chicken starter does not have sufficient protein for the guinea keets to develop properly.

    If they are adults, a good quality lay pellets that are 16% to 20% protein is good and oyster shell should be offered free choice for the hens.
