Just ordered my first guinea fowl, Picked them up on Wed. By Sat. They were all dead, they had a great indoor coop, fresh water with electrolytes, medicated starter food and a heat lamp, it was horrific, they got weak, necks turned back, couldnt walk, then flopped around till they each passed, ANYONE know what this could have been? Thank you!

They were mail ordered unforunatly, it was 100 degree day out but possibly the delivery truck had ac on??? Would that cause them to act the way they did though? Losing balance, becoming floppy and necks bending? I was afraid they were diseased? Or my brand new bag of Manapro feed infected? It also killed a baby copper maran that i put the guineas in with. Anyone from ohio???
