I have some guineas that I hatched and have been keeping on the back porch for about a month now. They keep getting out and messing up my porch, so yesterday I decided to take the two older ones and put them in the pen with the adult guineas. 3 younger ones would not shut up, so I took them and put them in the pen also. Well this morning I went to check on them, one dead, and two in bad shap from the cold. (48 low) I grab the two, and for some reason stopped and grabbed the dead one. As I picked up the dead one, it wasn't stiff, but lifeless. I took them to the brooder and put the light on them. My daughter calls me later at work and says I have a dead quinea, I said I know, just leave him under the light. I called home at 11:30, asked my wife whom just got home and having no clue as to what happened. I ask, how are the guineas, she says they are fine and are eating, she just fed them. She never said anything about a dead guinea, so I asked, all of them? She says the three in the brooder, ok wait a minute, are you sure? Sure enough, I get home, and all are fine. Why did I have this strange urge to grab that dead bird, then lay it under the light??? It was just weird as I was running late for work, and grabbing a dead bird could wait till I got home, but instead went back and got this bird, then placing a dead bird under the light, its all to weird, but hey, it worked out for the best. I have them back in the brooder tonight.
