Good grief, I'm up to my eyeballs in molting feathers in the aviaries. Have never noticed them like I do this year having White and Silver Pied peafowl. Does anyone just leave them or must they be cleaned up? I've always collected and put in the compost but can't seem to keep up anymore. Another question. Have a 2 year old male that has 2 train feathers that just won't fall out. WHY? New train is starting to grow. I'm tempted to put my foot on the end of them letting him pull them out as he moves away but know that hurts so won't do it. Shouldn't he looses them so others will grow in their place? OK, third question! Is there something extra to give the peafowl that helps them health wise during molting?
