    Hi everyone! About a year ago, my parents allowed me to get a guinea fowl. I have been trying to get a relationship with her as I have with all the others but for some reason, she's as wild as anything... About 1month ago she started becoming noisy... More noisy than you could imagine, I've never had a guinea fowl so noisy and I've got 10!
    She badly bullies my hens and rooster and all the other male and female guineas so I have to lock her up...
    But the notice is very bad, no matter WHAT I do she won't stop, and I thought the others were noisy...
    Please help! My family wants to get rid of her but I would feel horrible if I didn't try anything to help :(
  2. We had twelve guinea fowl at one point..... none of them were that noisy.... the only time they were really noisy was when they had nests. Every guinea has a different personality.... maybe her personality is just not being very nice. None of my guineas were nice, and they didn't let you come three feet from them. Maybe she's depressed...?? Try getting some meal worms and giving some to her..... our guineas loved meal worms.... just take it one day at a time..... [​IMG] You'll get it! Feel free to ask any questions!!!!

  3. Start "calling" her with a specific call or sound (like a whistle) and rewarding her with millet and mealworms or such.

    It works with almost any bird. I trained all my chickens, guineas, quail, and waterfowl to come when called.
