The set up: I have the 12x16 coop divided in two so each is 12x8 with my India Blue White eyed peacock Allan and blue pied hen Nellie in with 11 chickens. This is where I found my peacock Allan dead this morning and I am so upset don't know why he died or what to do with him as he is so very beautiful, he is too beautiful to bury plus the ground is frozen so I have a dilemma. If I bring him inside he will start to decay. I am still in shock. He is so beautiful I was even thinking of somehow preserving him, I just need time to think while I decide and do not know the best place to store his body. I left him under the nest box where I found him until I decide so suggestions on that as well. Much more importantly why he died is a mystery. My birds are randomly health tested monthly for AI and so on. Everyone else in his group seems fine. He was on the ground a lot yesterday as opposed to perching but didn't look sick, just quiet...I thought nothing of it as I had a guy doing some work around for me and I purposely checked his eyes too and they were clear and they were still clear when I found him dead, no discharge of any kind. He was about 3 1/2 years old. The other group in the front of the coop had a young peahen "Turkey" hatched July who I noticed had an eye issue crust on Christmas eve so I removed her from the group and thought someone had pecked her eye since she was pretty new to that group and she also sounded a little gurgly. I put her on baytril and terramycin in the eye and she is doing fine. On the morning of the 29th, I found one of my small chickens Millicent who seemed absolutely fine in there the day before dead on the ground and a little flat so I thought the 2 roosters had done it jumping o her, she had no sign of respiratory distress at all. I checked everyone else seemed fine. Then the next day I noticed the white peacock in the same group who is 18 months old had crust in his eyes and also sounds gurgly. I got the saline and tissues and terramycin and cleaned his eyes. During day he looked good This morning (Jan 1st) he still had it and also looked like a little blood streak coming from his mouth from like a thin streak or line, I can get a picture of it. so I gave him half of a 68 mg baytril this morning and will probably start his whole group there are also 9 other chickens in there on aureomycin or something later today. What can this be? I am baffled. These birds have their outside run covered in hardware cloth so they have no contact with wild birds. I worm them and last worming was November 30th. I am beside myself with grief for Allan and need wisdom on all these things. I don;t want his body to rot and I don;t want anyone else to get sick either. Please help me sort all these things out.
