    My 4 month old peacock has trouble walking. When it walks their knees rub together and it kinda wobbles and the area is starting to become raw.

    did you buy the bird as a chick or hatch it yourself? I dont know if hobbling the legs between a stick would work at this age

    There is a lot of information here about fixing leg problems on very young chicks but your chick being so old it may be too old to fix.
