Metronidazole and Baytril (enrofloxacin) are both banned by the FDA for use in food animals, so one needs to think about that.
Here are some necropsy pictures from one that I waited too long too start treatment on. If I had started medication the day I notice he was off I'm sure I could have save him.

Note: This is not my bird, it's one I sold two months ago and it was one that was raised indoors and off the ground, it was healthy and parasite/protozoa free when it left here.
Got a call yesterday from someone that I sold two young peacocks to two months ago saying that both were looking sick a few days ago. I told him I would come get the dead one and the one still alive and try to save it, but it died four hours after I brought it home.
Here he is looking very stoic three hours before he died. You can't tell from the picture, but he's about 1kg (2.2 pounds) underweight.
Here is a poop picture, but it looked much more yellow than it does here.
Here are the necropsy pictures from one of the peacocks.
Liver and cecal pouches
Contents of cecal pouch - black liquid poop, NOT normal!
Inside of cecal pouch
Liver with the blackhead spots and I think the black edges are necrotic
Well, the last 5 are still living and don't look sick at all and are eating and drinking well.
Last year when I got turkeys I raised them with the chickens and none died or got sick, they are the older heritage ones that are with the babies.
I plan on putting up another turkey run away from the chickens and where the chickens have never been and raising some more poults next year
I have a tom and hen blue slate and 3 bronze hens and plan on getting 2 more blue slate hens, 1 bronze tom and a trio of red borurbon. I am not sure I will get any WBB next year even though they grow real fast. I had a hard time obtaining the WBB this year and they weren't born until 1st of August so they won't be big enough for Thanksgiving day
Thank you for your help
