Our fierce and beloved Snowy (guinea hen, and mother of the clan) passed away this morning. We have no idea what happened. We have also in the last two months lost out other two female guineas, Minnie and her sister. Minnie and her sister may have been egg-bound but I can't find any details about it on any forums.
Jesus el Diablo P Morgan has sat with her body most of the day, returning again and again to be with her. As humans we completely ignore how much animals know and feel. He loved his mate as much as I love mine.
