I have a male peacock who developed a limp this summer. The limp seemed to correct itself but it came ack in November. His legs look fine so I suspect the problem is in his hips. It seems like something turned his hips like 30 degrees in one direction. This causes his train to slump off to that side. At first we attributed it to a minor leg problem he had when he was a chick (him and his sister were our first peafowl, we did not know gamebird feed was bad for them at the time. His sister got a slip tendon and was put down, he got a slight limp that went away after were put him on lower protein food). But I am not really sure. I was wondering what else could cause such a problem. I was also wondering if it could be genetic because one yearling peahen that could be his daughter (I am not sure we don't keep breeding records) has a leg problem. In her problem it seems like her legs are shorter that her flock mates but I am pretty sure she just constantly has the leg joint bent more than the other birds. I was wondering if the leg problem could be genetic, and if he should be removed from the breeding flock or if anyone had solutions to either of the two problems described.
