I so wish I had an answer for all of the problems that guineas can face (Diseases & Injuries)

Thankfully, most guinea fowl seem to encounter fewer health problems than most other poultry - although that is small consolation when one of our pet guineas becomes ill. Guineas, having a closer connection with their ancestors, seem to have stronger immune systems. When they do get sick, it seems to me that stress is often the root cause. Guineas do get stressed more easily than other poultry, which is a characteristic of a wild bird. Perhaps bolstering their immune systems is the best we can do to help them, but what do we need to do to do that? I know diet is important as well as stress reduction (if that's even possible with guineas).
