    Hi Everyone, I'm totally new to peacocks and hope someone here can help. My daughters gave me a pair of peacocks who bred immediately. We had five hatch out of seven and they were all doing great until about a week ago. One (the smallest and I think the only female) started looking a bit rough. No one picked on her or hurt her. I just found her dead. There's not a single mark on her, no bugs or lice. Might anyone have any ideas what went wrong? The other four look amazing and have all been checked over thoroughly. I appreciate any help or suggestions.

    I've never raised peas but they are such beautiful birds. Here's a link to the peafowl forum, someone over there should be able to help you out:
