    I've noticed recently that my peacock sounded funny when he hollered, like he had a bad cough...the past couple of nights, I've noticed he's rattling (like in his chest) while breathing...thoughts, suggestions?

    Sounds like you need to get some good antibiotics and treat for a respiratory infection asap. Baytril would be good if you have it. Maybe someone else would have some suggestions.
