    I'm hoping someone on here can help me,
    I have some guinea keets that are about 4 weeks old. In the last 3 days i have had 7 die suddenly on me. They become very lethargic, act like they are going to sleep, and then die. Today i noticed about 4 of them acting lethargic and then doing this weird neck thing. I have raised guinea before and never had any issues, any help would be greatly appreciated.I'm hoping someone on here can help me,

    Do you have a heat light on them are they warm enough? Are you feeding them game bird starter? I would put electrolites in their water and see if that helps. I'm so sorry for your losses and I hope the rest survive.
