    She was fine all day then my husband came home from work and said one of the guineas was having a problem breathing. I went out and picked her up and she died in my arms.
    She had no injuries that I could see until I turned her over and she add a bulge from her bottom.

    Here is the photo she was born June 8 th this year. This is my first year raising chickens and guineas. Not sure I'm ready to have them die so young

    Is this something that will effect my other birds?

    Is that her vent? It looks like it prolapsed.

    I am not sure about guineas, that is just what it looks like to me. I wonder if you will get more responses if you post this in the guinea thread?! I wish someone that knows more would answer you.
