    Hi,
    Looking for some advice please on a peahen who is having sessions of randomly shooting her head up in the air. I will upload a video to youtube and link it as the file seem to be too large for here. She has been to the vets but so far we have been unable to find what’s wrong with her. She had a tube passed down to her crop today to ensure there were no obstructions which there weren’t. She has had some fluids but has stopped eating. Any advice or suggestions would be most welcome. Many thanks in advance.

    Sorry to hear about your Peahen, I don't know anything about them.
    Try to get your video to youtube and provide us a link so Casportpony can take a look.

    I would check throat for obstructions, but it kinda looks like normal behavior to me.. but I've never owned peacocks, so whatever casportpony says!

    It looks like something in her esophagus or crop is bothering her. Does she have any food in her crop?

    You also wrote this:
    Does this mean the vet tubed fluids or gave subcutaneous fluids?

    Tubed fluid. The tube passed down to her crop with no obstructions at all. Her crop is empty, no obvious foreign body in there either.x
