The last bird that I had that got sick (last year) we treated, but she didn't make it. I thought blackhead was something I only had to worry about if I had chickens, but I forgot that also earthworms can be an issue. A few days ago I found a grub under some wood and Frosty ate it so that could have made him sick. Also, everyone steps all over Frosty's train getting it dirty and recently someone pooped on his back so he is just filthy. I was wondering if this could have made him sick too? I was thinking about this other topic when I finally decided today that I think he is sick: https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/...pea-suddenly-watery-white-stool-not-energetic I watched him until he pooped and it was just white, but it did have a faint yellow tint. Now I am really worried...If Frosty has it will they all get it? I was going to worm the peafowl starting yesterday anyways, so it was good to read on the other topic that the blackhead medicine can be given with the safeguard. I feel so stupid for not keeping this kind of medicine on hand. I hope I caught this soon enough. I really like Frosty he is the only white peacock I have. Questions time: Quote from Cathy from other topic : I forgot what I read about the metronidazole, can I get it at a pet store or feed store? I think I remember you or someone saying the fish zole can be found at the pet store. I am also going to see the local vet and see if he can be of any help. I feel stupid for not being ready for something like this...My dad was just telling me when he had hunting dogs he was always stocked up with meds for them and that I should have been doing that. ------------- Anyways the symptoms are: - liquid poop with tint of yellow - Lowered wings - Only eating lettuce or grass and even then sometimes he would just peck at food but not eat it. He wasn't eating as crazy fast like he is known for doing. - Standing off alone doing nothing. - Getting really close to me and letting me get really close. Normally all of my birds get close, but Frosty has been really getting in my way when normally he would be moving out of the way. The other day he came over and lay behind me when I was sitting down. I thought he was just being friendly. I guess he was trying to tell me that he is sick. I hope I am catching this early enough.
