    My Guinea-Fowls (I've got 6) are completely wild and definitely not tame and every morning and every night before dusk they will screech their heads off on top of the chicken house so I gave 4 of them away because they were making such a racket. Unfortunately one of them died and so I only have 1 called Winnie. I was thinking of getting more hoping I could tame them to stay below down in one of my paddocks, not with the chickens.
    So I was wondering if I could tame them, raising them up under neath a heat lamp. Do you think this will work?

    Others have tamed them. It should work. Genetics have almost as much to do with it as handling and personal experience though. So selecting tamer parent stock if able will help. Best wishes.
