Hello I have had peafowl for a number of years, Last year they seemed to get a resperatory disease gasping and eventually not being able to roost. ,I worm them so I don't think that's the problem,
They seem perfectly normal and healthy and when they turn 3 they come into distress There doesn't seem to be any outward signs on their bodies. They are free range all summer and have there own barn in the winter. We built them a brand new barn and they are with no other species.
In the summer they live in the trees and I know when one starts to get sick as he roosts lower in the trees eventually not able to roost at all. It seem strange they all get sick at 3 years old
this batch were hatched by seemingly healthy parents who eventually died if this disease the babies seemed fine now they are starting to gasp .Can this disease be passed through the eggs?
I have contacted 2 vets around here they don't seem to be interested in helping, one even told me I know more about peacocks than him
Please any help would be appreciated
