Peafowl 101: Basic care, genetics, and answers. - Page 17

post #161 of 165

My mother rescued this Peahen that was roaming around the neighborhood. She will be bringing to live with me, my chickens and Guinea fowl.  not sure if she has been wormed. I doubt it but do I need to quarantine her from my other fowls. They all Free range during the day and share a coop at night. Please Help.

From my limited experience in having a peacock adopt me and buying 2 peahens last month to keep him company, I would deworm her just to be safe. The info I've gotten here and from my recent vet visit with one of my peahens, peas are more susceptible to diseases/parasites that chickens carry. Better safe than sorry. :)

Thank You Very Much. I will definitely make sure she is wormed.
