They talk about curiosity & cats, but cats have nothing on these young peacocks! I got to put on my veterinary hat yesterday. I went out yesterday evening to give the peas their evening treat (spiral pasta) & the largest one, Jabba, was hunched up in a corner with his eyes closed. I thought "O NO!" & walked over & picked him up. There was a piece of flight netting protruding from his beak. I started to pull it & nothing happened, I opened his beak wider & saw it was wrapped around his tongue-- hooked up around the back of it. Jim (my husband) had come outside & I called him to come help. He came over & held Jabba & tipped him back so I could see down into his throat. I pulled & pulled -- and pulled. I pulled out almost 6 inches of flight netting from down his throat! finally I pulled out a gob of grass & slime tangled in netting. How he found it I'll never know, I looked all over that coop and run and couldn't find any more like it - unless he flew up & clung to the top of the cage & somehow got it there. It must have been a stray piece that had blown into a clump of grass is all I can figure. We set him down & he immediately shook himself off & walked over & got a drink of water & then started to eat. I imagine his little throat was probably sore though! Jim said, " Well.....that was definitely the "gross" highlight of my day" and I agreed. Is there anything else I ought to do for him, do you think? he seemed to be perfectly fine this morning.
