OHHHHH, that sounds awful! None of my birds scream like that! Libby is a very quiet bird.
You must never respond to her when she's screaming, that will reinforce the screaming. Turn your back, walk away, don't look at her at all. She must have done this in her previous home and it got her attention, whether it was negative or positive, it got her attention. Don't give in, be consistent in not responding.
This will take time and LOTS of patience on your part, but if you stick to it, you will win. She won't continue to do what doesn't work for her.
In the meantime, hang in there, and buy some earplugs!! I feel your pain!
