I've been doing quite a bit of research here before we bring home a peacock tomorrow. I still have some questions that I hope someone can guide me through! 1 - I bed my horses and chickens in straw. I assume I can do this with the peacock as well? 2 - I plan on quarantining him for at least 4 weeks. During this time, I plan on doing some preventative treatments, especially for coccidiosis. I know absolutely nothing about this bird or his history so I want to make sure we take care of any existing problems. Is there anything else I should also treat him for? Something for worms, maybe, and / or blackhead? 3 - During his quarantine, we plan on visiting him often to acclimatize him to us. Maybe feed him treats? I want to butter him up before I start forcing medicine down his yap. All I really do know about his history is that he either left the place he was born or was dumped somewhere near our friends' place. He is friendly with them and will come right up to them for treats. 4 - I plan on putting him in our old chicken "coop". It is actually a foaling stall where my mare had her baby years and years ago before I married into the farm. I would guess it is 12 x 14 or 14 x 14, something like that. I don't have a good idea of how big he will be (large chicken-sized from what I can see on Youtube?). I assume this is big enough? He doesn't have a train of feathers, so space may be less of an issue? 5 - Feed. Some of what I read says gamebird feed. Some says meat bird feed. Some people mix dog/cat/kitten food in. I assume I feed him as an adult even though he has no train so is likely young (see my previous post for photo)? Or should I get a better assessment of his age before deciding what to feed him? I have looked at quite a few of the articles here. What a wealth of information! Thank you all!!
