of poultry can be started much as we outline for baby chicks. Each of
these birds should be started on a 28-30% Turkey Starter or Game bird
feed. If neither of these feeds can be found, they can be started on

Starter to an 18-20% Grower. As you might expect, going with the higher
protein feeds will speed the growth of these types of fowl. However,
if they are not available, the Chick Starter and Grower feeds will do
the job for you.
all types of poultry, it is important that Guineas be kept out of
the waterers. If you experience the birds getting into the waterers
and getting soaked, place some small rocks or marbles in the drinking
trough. This will normally solve the problem.
