Just had my 1st guinea die and the story.

It is 10:00 PM and I am about to go to sleep. All of a sudden I hear a loud crash and guineas hecklin all over the place. I run outside and I saw a dark shade of something fly by. From my outside light I see a shadow of a big bird. I don't know what it was but after I change the light on my heat lamp so I could see what happened there was a dead 7 week old guinea laying on the bottom of the cage. It is a shock to see a guinea that you raise from hatching all the way to where you can start free ranging die in their safest place. Just thought I would let you all know what happened.

Sounds as if you were visited by a Great Horned Owl. They are persistent predators, and most likely it will be back. Fix your pens so that it can not get at your Guineas.
Sorry for your loss.
Oh, I'm so sorry! It's always so hard to see one of the babies you raised laying there lifeless..........
