    I have 10 Gunieas and two hens they are all eating the same food and this winter I was hoping to just feed them the Wild game bird food and not to have to keep buying both will then be ok?

    Are they housed together?
    Is the game bird feed a high protein?

    If it's excessive protein it can be hard on the liver and kidney of chickens. If they're housed together, you won't be able to decide who eats what - will you?
