    What do you feed your peafowl?

    At what age do you switch from 'baby' food to adult food?

    What do you worm them with and how? (Ivermec? Valbasin? Other?)

    How often? (Monthly, semianually?)

    (are these questions too vague?)

    Well I can only tell you what I do.... i feed chick starter or turkey starter up until they are about 4-6 months old, then they go to a turkey grower. i also feed them cat food, pond fish food, wild bird seed, fruits & nuts etc.
    Worming depends on if they free range with the chickens. I use the fenabenazole(Safe Guard or Panacure) 1cc per 10lbs, every 3 months, if you use the goat wormer form found at TSC, milky liquid. Ivomec under their wing for lice & mites.[​IMG]
