So my neighbor thought Bob our local Guinea was lonely and brought home two chicks a few days ago. I agreed to raise them since I had all of the equipment having just finished raising my chicken chicks. So knowing nothing about raising Guineas I come to the masters (you all) to find out how to do so. I found out that he needed to get game bird feed instead of chick starter. He went to get some and the local feed store only sells it in 50 lb bags. He tells me he has already bought the chick starter and will not spend the extra for a 50lb bag for only two chicks, and besides the folks at the store told him that they've raised lots of them on chick starter and that it'll work just fine. So now I get to my question of can I supplement the starter to get the % up? Or I fear it would probably be best to just spend my own precious money to get the proper % feed. I presume I was correct in telling my neighbor that it wouldn't be wasted with only two chicks because he could just continue feeding it to them and Bob. Also what and when can we give treats? I have planned to when they get as big as my chickens out in the pen to put them in there with them for a while before free roaming them with Bob.
