    Are they free ranged?

    This kind of feed might be good in a pinch but it is bad for long term.

    Guineas are high energy birds and they need lots of protien to maintain good condition.

    Mine are totaly free range and i still feed them flock raiser at 20 percent protein.

    Mine love corn. I have a squirrel feeder and they hang around under it cleaning up whatever gets spilled. Could your feed be moldy or otherwise bad?
