    PM a moderator and ask them to post this in the Peafowl section. This area is mostly related to chickens and occasionally waterfowl, but peafowl are usually discussed over in the Peafowl section. Here's a copy of the sticky from the top of this section. Maybe you could answer some of the questions to help others help you.

    Give us the following information. The more you tell us, the better we will be able to help you.

    1) What type of bird , age and weight.
    2) What is the behavior, exactly.
    3) How long has the bird been exhibiting symptoms?
    4) Are other birds exhibiting the same symptoms?
    5) Is there any bleeding, injury, broken bones or other sign of trauma.
    6) What happened, if anything that you know of, that may have caused the situation.
    7) What has the bird been eating and drinking, if at all.
    8) How does the poop look? Normal? Bloody? Runny? etc.
    9) What has been the treatment you have administered so far?
    10 ) What is your intent as far as treatment? For example, do you want to treat completely yourself, or do you need help in stabilizing the bird til you can get to a vet?
    11) If you have a picture of the wound or condition, please post it. It may help.
    12) Describe the housing/bedding in use

    Sorry I can't help you. Good luck.
