    I think my guinea hen is dying. She lets me hold her and all she does is open and close her mouth. I put the heat lamp on her thinking maybe it was to cold for her. Is there anything I can give her. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    Getting her warm is a great place to start. Keep her in a room that's 80-85 degrees, and if she's alive in the morning, you'll need to figure out how to get some sugar water into her. Do you want to learn how to tube feed fluids?
