    Hello all!!!
    I've read many interesting things here, in the last several months, whenever I've googled bird questions! Lots of great info from what I have seen and great people that jump right in to help each other!! I am not that adept with computer stuff, more the outdoorsy type, so I'm behind the learning curve, hope and can pick this up!!!
    We have just one chicken, a sweet little girl , a rescue, and that is Lullabelle our black silkie hen. We are completely smitten with her!!! Just makes you smile!! She is a the vets this past 24 hrs. As she has been egg bound for two weeks plus now!!!... Very very concerning. We pick her up tomorrow. Hoping the best, but very worried.
    Also have four peafowl, our one boy has been very ill this past two weeks with cocccidia and external parasites, he's done with the meds, but has a long road ahead of him.
    We've only had them all just going on a year, it's been quite an experience, still so much to learn!!!!
    Looking forward to meeting some great bird loving folks here!!!...[​IMG]

    Welcome to Backyard chickens. BYC also has threads on peafowl where they would best be able to answer your questions.
