We've had 2 or 3 chillas that will make the "alarm" whining type of call but only when they hear a weird noise or they are startled.
My most laid back chilla was the one that we let play in my daughter's room when she was age 10, and he would inspect her room, chew on her homework, then hop into her dresser drawer and go poo in the corner. Very amusing. That chilla is now 17 years old and has slowed down, but still has a very sweet character.
2 of our other young males were from the spca and were scrawny, inbred little critters, they had behaviour problems but did okay when adopted out into quiet homes.
Since it sounds like your chilla is basically healthy and active it may just take more time for him to adjust or he may have a quirky personality. Good Luck.
Please have pets spayed or neutered and wearing an ID tag.
Adoption is the only option
