I have 6 guineas (supposed to be female) that are about 2-1/2 months old. I started them on chick starter, which seemed fine with them. They have a large pen outside that has become bare ground, but they usually let themselves out of it as soon as I open the coop. We've had a bumper year for grasshoppers. The guineas spend a little time in the am on their garden duty, then head next door, or into the cow pasture or goat pasture, into the woods by the barn, across the road, or who knows where. Usually I can't find them and have no idea where they are. So far they always come home in the evening. They seem to appreciate their water being filled, but just scratch the starter into the ground. I tried hen scratch too. They eat very little of it, if any. I've offered them a taste of just about everything I can. They will eat a few llama pellets and as much watermelon as I will give them. Otherwise, they are eating grass and (mostly) chasing grasshoppers. Do I need to be concerned, or is this enough for them. More importantly, what about when the weather cools and there are no more grasshoppers? I'd rather if I could offer them something to keep them coming home and to be assured they are eating enough in the winter. Thinking in terms of chickens, geese, ducks this sounds like a silly question, but I'm finding the guineas to be a bit weird. thanks!
