I have a bit of a problem with my 2 lovely 9 months old peahens ( they live in a pen outside - separated but close to my chickens).
On Saturday I noticed one of them(peahen 1) feeling a bit down and sneezing. When on Sunday and Monday morning she did not improve I went ahead and gave her and her sister
1 pill of GaliProtect C(medicine for birds found in Romania) which contains: Oxytetracycline chlorhydrate 12 mg/120 mg; Colistin sulfate 5 mg/120 mg;.
Monday: 1 Pill of : Oxytetracycline chlorhydrate 12 mg/120 mg; Colistin sulfate 5 mg/120 mg;.
Tuesday: 1 Pill of : Oxytetracycline chlorhydrate 12 mg/120 mg; Colistin sulfate 5 mg/120 mg; . She didn't seem to be getting worse
Wednesday: 2 pills of Oxytetracycline chlorhydrate 12 mg/120 mg; Colistin sulfate 5 mg/120 mg;
Today I noticed that peahen 1 got a lot better, but peahen 2 which was fine until this morning looks sick. Peahen 2 refused to eat today - i bring them treats ( parsley, boiled egg, strawberries from my garden) - and I noticed she was sitting in her shed. She came to check the treats out but she refused to touch any of them. The previous day she ate some boiled egg when i brought the treats over.
Spending some time with them I was able to see her poop. Its bright green. I got a bit worried and I remembered seeing a similar color in the poop post and it said it was Cocci infection.
Late this evening I gave them a medicine called Coccistop (Sulfaquinoxaline 8 mg Vitamin K3 16 mg Vitamin C 40 mg - dosages are according to their weight ).
Peahen 2 drank some water after the pill I gave her but she did not touch any food. Peahen 1 seems fine. The 1+ yeard old peacock living with them seems fine and didnt and doesn't have any symptoms.
Her symptoms are:
- lack of appetite
- sitting in the shed most of the day
- her wings are left hanging a bit
Any idea what could cause these symptoms? Has anyone had similar symptoms ? I am very worried for her!
Short history of vaccines and deworming
Vaccinated against :NEWCASTLE,Avian Infectious Bursitis, Cholera
Deworming: 15th March with Albendazol 25 mg/250 mg; Avermectina B1 1 mg/250 mg
Once per month(last time on the 15th of April) I give them the following for 5 days in their food (recommended by a vetenarian ):
Metronidazol 10 g/100 g; Oxytetracycline hidrocloric 6 g/100 g; Furazolidone 2 g/100 g; bismuth subnitrate 2 g/100 g;

In March I received a new male peacock which is one year old. After 3 weeks in which i kept him in quarantine and vaccinated and dewormed him I intorduced him to my peahens. He does not have any symptoms.
