Rinse hen and pat dry. Remove liver and giblets and set aside.

Add 2 tablespoons water, if it starts to brown. Add sage, guinea hen giblets, and liver and chicken liver and continue cooking slowly for 8 to 10 minutes, or until everything is soft and gray. Add orange zest and juice, vinegar, sugar, cinnamon, chili flakes and black pepper and simmer five more minutes, mashing with a potato masher to form a fine paste. Remove guinea hen when cooked, let rest 5 minutes, carve and bring to table. Place peverada in a bowl and serve on the side.
