Pellets Feeding adult piggies, young cavy food?

My piggies have been eating Oxbow's adult pellets since they were over 6 months old. I accidentally order the wrong kind and order the young guinea pig food and was just wondering if it would be OK if I just feed this one instead? I am so mad at myself because I ordered 10lbs! of the wrong kind and I ordered online so for me it would be a hassle to ship it back and wait for another shipment.

My piggies are still less than 1 years old and they don't really eat much pellets because they prefer their hay and fresh veggies.

Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
 
If they're under a year, it's probably ok. The main danger is that they'll get too much calcium. Watch the cage for white spots where they pee. If you find them, you may either have to switch pellets or make some adjustments in their veggie diet.
