whistles?? =D That is a rare sound, something that is unusual and I do not know anyone who knows what it means. It can be a warning, or something, for all we know. Or boredom. I play it on the computer and all my guineas stand still, not even a twitch

Whistling? Honestly I don't think I've ever heard that sound from my piggies.

Maybe the owner is getting it mixed up with another sound.

Well I know guineas "wheek." All guinea owners have heard that sound. If it's like a high-pitched squeal that gets louder and louder, it could mean they are excited about something. Mine make this noise whenever I open the pantry door where I keep their food.

It is a baby guinea... sorry. I was distracted when I posted. Well... it may have been half grown. Not sure. I've never owned a guinea... but I'd LOVE to.

Awww thats so sweet. When I went into the pet store the other day there was this one guinea pig that would 'wheek' that sounded like a whistle... All the others just sat there, but this particular one seemed very interested in attention and was showing a lot of interest in the people as they passed.

I was wondering if this was akin to a barking dog who's pinned up and neurotic or if it's a good sign of being a loving and socialized pet.

no they are not getting it mixed up. There is whistling. VERY rare, and VERY few guinea owners have the chance to hear it. some guineas might do it once in their lifetime - others, always, others, never.

=D THAT is the "whistle" sound, often known as chirping.
