Sick Guinea Hen

The other day I noticed one my young guinea hens had puffy eyelids and wasn't as active as the rest of the flock. She was hatched this year and usually very active running all around the place but now she just sits on the fence all day. I haven't seen her drink anything and she hardly eats. I don't know what's wrong with her and I don't know how to help her. She keeps her neck close to her body with her feathers fluffed up. What should I do to help her?

Avian lead poisoning.

Is the acid in a bird's gizzard strong enough to dissolve lead? There is great pressure to ban lead shot because, if ingested by a duck and then by a raptor, the raptor will suffer lead poisoning. I'm skeptical because lead forms the anode and cathode in an automobile battery bathed in a solution of sulfuric acid. Is the acid content of a raptor's gizzard more effective at dissolving lead? My hunting friends and I are confused and the games commissioners who make the rules are not forthcoming with a commonsensical explanation. Can you please help?
