Ok, this is part sad, part frustrating, and part ... hungry? It's a confusing emotion. We have a flock of young guinea fowl, and they are about the stupidest creatures I have ever met. Our goat pasture has a 4' fence with 2 wires of electric - one high, one low, though that low one is high enough that the goats can nibble the grass under it if they are careful. Maybe 8" off the ground. One of our guinea hens (the pretty one, too) managed to get stuck between the fence and the electric wire (a space of about 6") and died of electrocution. I'm so sorry she died that way, it makes me sick, it was a painful way to go. But geeze, I've NEVER had a chicken manage to kill itself that way. They're smart enough to not wedge themselves between the wire and the fence, I suppose. I was hoping to make SOMEthing good come of her death. Could we eat her? I'm not sure how long she was there. It was definitely within the last 12 hours. She's in rigor mortis. The outside of her feathers is cool, but next to her skin is warm. What do you think? Are there guidelines for these kinds of things? Thanks so much, guys.
