one keet screeches ALL the time

    The keets have settled in nicely so far except for one keet that screeches non-stop when it's awake. It sounds like a giant cricket! The rest make a variety of noises here and there, but no one joins in to make it a chorus. There are no outward signs of distress. The keet is sitting with the other keets when he does it so not feeling lonely. My husband was speculating that it might be missing a friend from it's brooder (the boy had put them in with young turkeys) and we bought all 8 keets not wanting to leave just a few behind to avoid separation anxiety! Are there guineas that screech constantly throughout their lives (please say it isn't so) or is it going through an adjustment phase, do you think.
