    One of my peahens died yesterday. She was fine in the morning and stiff in the evening. The other 3 seem fine, although one was slightly fluffed up this morning. They sometimes fluff up at me when I go into their house.

    Also, the one and only turkey has a swollen and runny eye. He has been away from the peafowl for 3 weeks, but were together for 2 weeks prior to that. There was a bee attacking his head 2 weeks ago and I thought he may have been stung, but the swelling didn't appear for several days after the bee incident.

    None of my chickens appear to have any issues, but niether did the peahen....

    Any suggestions?

    Okay, I bought Duramycin-10 at TSC and a pkt of Vitamins & electrolytes. Who should get what???

    Should the chickens get anything? I really try to be as chem free as possible.

    Turkey boy is meant to join us for Thanksgiving.

    Please help

    Let me also say that I have never had a sick bird until now and the only time I ever lost one was a chick that drowned in a bucket.
