    I have 3 young peafowl. 2 are doing fine, but one of my peahens, is not thriving. She is half the size of the other 2 and seems to have some kind of respiratory problem. She is wheezing and is short of breath.

    What can I do to help her.

    Thanks
    Suzie

    I don't know peafowl, but I would try giving her some type of antibiotics in her water or thru injection.TYlan maybe for 3-5 days and keep her isolated in case she's contagious
