    Ok after 3 months of game bird and turkey starter now what should i start feeding my guineas. I have been giving them scratch and they love it but i don't thnk it is a complete feed. these are penned up guineas as there is too many predators out here to let them free range. I found that out the hard way by loosing 18 or 20 guineas in the first three months. should i give them grower and finisher for chickens or look for some turkey food? So what do you guys feed your guineas??

    Mine free range, but the feed that I give them (whether they eat it is another story) is flock raiser. They should be able to eat the same things that your chickens eat though.
