    i have 4 guineas in a pen, they have been on chick starter, they are 5 months old now, what should i feed them now? and what treats do they like? they are in a 10X20 chain link pen, im sure they catch bugs that get in there too, also, i cant let them free range, neighbors are too close, any suggestions appreciated!

    If they are in with chickens let them eat whatever the chickens are eating

    Quote:no, they are not in with the chickens, i have separate pens, but my chickens eat layena pellets, can guineas eat that?

    Mine eat layer pellets and meat bird feed. I throw in a handful of dog food which they love to eat.
    But mine free range all day too.
    I think that feeding them pellets would be fine....
