    What should I feed my 15 week guineas? They are let out to roam freely all day but come back to their pen at night and I feed them chicken layer crumbles and they squawk all night like they are still hungry.

    I would feed them a game bird or all flock feed. They are not going to lay this year.

    I would feed them game bird constantly. They will get the remainder of nutrient they need will free ranging that would support egg laying considering their continuous consumption of insects and foraging habits. They are, after all, much more wild than chickens.
