Short summary
The aim of this study was to assess the performance and meat quality of meat-type guinea fowl fed commercial diets under two different feeding programs similar to those for turkeys and broilers. Findings of the study suggest that these diets can be used in meat-type guinea fowl rearing without affecting the productive traits and meat quality. However, due to the lower price of chicken feed (due to lower protein content), its use seems to be more justified from an economic point of view.
