    Hi, I have a peacock that has a bloody and watery stool and I don't know what to do. He is getting his tail feathers back, maybe that could be the issue?

    Could you share a photo of the poop?

    It could be Cocci.

    Is he showing any other symptoms?

    It certainly could be Cocci.

    You can treat that with Corid, which you can get from Tractor Supply.

    I might also take a stool sample to a local vet and get them to do a fecal float to identify any parasites your poor pea could have.

    @casportpony is great with peafowl, too. I only have chickens.

    Keep us posted!!

    So, we found out that it was just the berries that he was eating next to our house.
