    My dogs dug into the garden and killed 1 Guinea and wounded another. I have looked all over the second guinea and cannot find any blood or puncture marks, but it cannot fly. I was thinking of locking the hurt guinea in the coop with the other guineas if they all come back tonight, because I don’t know what else to do. Does anyone have any advice? The dogs are locked in the back yard until the area can be fixed.

    Lock the injured guinea up in the coop, away from the predators.Tomorrow check the guinea to see if a wing is damaged. Healthy guineas can always fly to avoid predators.If the guinea has a damaged wing, I would isolate it to see if the condition would improve. Don't forget, their defense is always their ability to fly like a helicopter.
