I am posting this again because I'm not sure if the first post was seen by anyone. I need advice regarding 2 peafowl that are not mine but I have been trying to help them for close to a year now. First of all, I have to be careful not to loose my job.... They are somewhere between 6-10 years old and have only ever been fed turkey grower. Last Sept after a couple of months of (me) complaining, the owner agreed to change the feed to wild game grower, which is the best we can get here. These birds get no greens, no grit, nothing. Fresh water is not always provided either. I am constantly arguing with the powers that be. The peafowl have been very listless for several months now. The coop door is open all winter allowing cold air to blow in, from what I am able to see there is a little hay for bedding. I think this was corrected last week after I complained again. They saw the vet in July 2012 and I was told by the owner that the vet was pleased with their condition. A few weeks ago I started taking food to them, lettuce, sunflower seeds, celery, banana's. It wasn't long before they recognized my voice and came running out of the coop for their snack. Sadly, I have been told not to feed them as I may be harming them (since I am not a peacock expert). It concerns me that I may be blamed for their condition. Here are some pictures I took of them last week. The male looks the worse. He has no 'crown' and the top of his head is bald. You will notice he looks burnt. Apparently this was caused by a hot lightbulb ( hanging without a protector) and during the cold spell a while back the peacock scorched his feathers trying to stay warm. I can't tell if they have parasites. But I do know they have never been dewormed or de-liced. I am hoping to get some useful advice that I can take back to the owner. Thanks.
