Did you ever do more research on this to find the cause? I have 7 2 month old Guineas. It seems like yours must have been diseased since the chicken also died. Seems too like Meyer's should replace the chicken they killed! I hope your new batch does better!

Here's a thread on Star Gazing. (head turned up & acting topsy-turvy)

Another possibility like star gazing...

It really seems to me that Meyer contracted with an infected breeder. Why else would your chicken have died too? I haven't heard great things about them though so this doesn't surprise me.
