    I was cleaning out my feed room the other day. I knocked a rat bar out if its area. I did not notice it until I saw one of the Gunieas and a hen pecking at it. I removed the bar and thought all was ok now the Guniea is acting off. If this were a Cow, Horse, Dog, cat etc I would give it Vitamin K shots. I was thinking of doing this to the Guniea what do you think? How much? I would do about 1-1.5 ml 2x a day but I am really not sure so ANYONE??? Thanks

    Quote:Wings are drooping, I head something odd in the barn, sent my daughter to the barn and the Guniea was on his back crying. She was able to pick him up WITHOUT him flipping out when being picked up. Normally when you pick them up they DO NOT like it and scratch you.
