Hi, I've managed to fix this problem in a new chick once but I'm having trouble fixing this baby. She is an only baby that a friend gave to me to care for and raise. I don't have guineas so this is my first. Is it possible this could fix itself? can they live with the problem? I'm just curious. I will continue to work on this little one. I have no idea if it's male or female and obviously I won't be sexing the poor thing. Can you tell by colors? I have no idea what kind she/he is. It has brownish feathers starting to show. The baby is light brown with dark brown stripes a thick one that runs down from head to butt. Also has a stripe over the eye. Pretty cool looking baby. Eventually I will get a picture but right now I have a broken ankle that I'm dealing with and I managed to sneak to the computer. Thanks.
