I'm posting this question for my mom... She had 6 juvenile india blue peafowl-5 hens and 1 cock- for the time being they are separated into 2- 3 bird pens. The pens are 12 X 16 each with an attached walkin peafowl house that is split between the 2 trios. they are feed a mixed diet of seasonal greens, game bird crumble, the occasional hands full of cat chow, fruits, some mixed seed, and veg. She noticed one of her hens was pecking at the webbing between her toes to the point of breaking skin with bleeding, no lameness, or swelling, just pecking herself til she bleeds. Mom's treated with BluKote and an antipick lotion. The hen will clear up then just out of the blue start on the webbing again. Now Mom's noticed that another hen in the other pen has started pecking the webbing between her toes the same as the first hen in the other pen. I've looked at the hens for mites, etc and not seen anything out of the ordinary- their plummage is healthy and no other damage other than to their webbings and that's just a small wound. I don't think it's hygiene- they are bedded on pine shavings in the house and the pen is very clean. Looking for advice about other possible causes for this web picking. Could it be something environmental that we're missing? Is this something they may grow out of? Mom's wanted peafowl for as long as I can remember and she doesn't want to lose any of them. Are there signs to tell if this may be fungal or bactrial? How would this be treated? Should she be treating this in another way other than how she's treating now? Thanks for taking the time to read and reply.
