    So my peacock made a bad landing when he jumped and hadn't been acting normal since, I noticed he hadn't really eaten today 24 hours after, and pulled him aside and pulled his wing out, and suddenly drips of blood was on me and my floor. There isnt blood in his cage or anywhere else unless his wing is moved, so I'm leaving it be but I do not know where the bleeding is from or what I should do. Parents will be out of country for the next 5 days, so any help is appreciated. Want to see him better.

    I would try to look up antibiotics to give to your peacock so infection doesn't happen. If you can't really touch your peacock if he doesn't like human contact like mine, just make sure that he is medicated and keep his pen clean. If you can grab him, try to clean his wound http://www.hopkinslivestock.com/Peafowl Medications.htm
    This here can help you on what to use to clean the wound and some antibiotics for your peacock to take

    You need to get some food and water in him. Is there any way to contact your parents by email? Wish I could be more help. Food and water is pretty important so it can keep it's strength up. You don't want it to be injured, and weak. Wish I could be of more help.
