    I am considering getting Guinea keets soon and was wondering if I could feed them the regular chick feed. If so, do I need to feed them the medicated feed? Thanks for your help.

    They actually will need a gamebird starter; they require more protein than chicks. Medicated is not necessary :)

    Ok! Thank you. I was going to put them under my broody hen and let her raise them. Could she eat the gamebird starter too?

    She should be okay on it. That's what I've always done when I have a chicken raising keets :)
