Keet feed schedule

Asked July 7, 2020, 9:37 AM EDT

Can keets eat medicated chicken crumbles or medicated turkey starter? We have 5 week old keets and 9 week old turkeys and 10 week old chickens. We have been feeding keets and turkeys 26-28% game bird starter with Amprolium. The chickens are free range and eating medicated chick crumbles as a supplement. When can the keets, if ever, convert to chick starter? When they turn 18 weeks old we start them on scratch with millet.

See our article on raising guinea fowl at - https://poultry.extension.org/articles/poultry-management/raising-guinea-fowl-in-small-and-backyard-flocks/

It is important to feed UNMEDICATED feed to guinea fowl. The feeds with medication have the dosage set for chickens and not guinea fowl.
