I have had three guineas die in the last few days. None of my other birds (chickens/turkeys) are sick. The guineas are just showing up dead with no sign of trauma. What kind of disease can they catch? Or is there something they ate that is poisonous? Or are they just old (how long does a guinea live anyway)?

I can't speak specifically to guineas, but I just had a Muscovy die mysteriously. A vet friend suggested I should have done a basic post-mortem on him. Open up the chest and abdomen and look around. The liver will show a lot of fat if it is fatty liver disease, or you may find some parasites or other evidence of disease. If you don't get any better answers, might be worth a try.
