I may be admitting my ignorance here, but I do not vaccinate peafowl for pox only my chickens. I have never had a peafowl develop pox. I have had it in my chickens, but never any deaths.

As for my other on hand drugs I have many but the favorite few must have are:

Ivermectin (injectible and pour on)
Safeguard
Valbazen
Tylan 200
Baytril (Injectible only for me so you need a good vet to get it)
Fishzole (in any of the many forms)

I have Ivermectin, Safegaurd, Vabazen, Batril, and Penicillin. I guess I best be doing some more studying as I have never heard of pox in peafowl. I guess I have never had it in my chickens either. Probably just been lucky.

I have fishzole (two diff kinds amoxacillan and the long m one - metzaondate/dole?) and sulmet - antibiotics for blackhead and ???
Safeguard - wormer
and we have vitamins.
What are all these other things for?
does everyone need them?
should we give them grit if they're inside for the winter?
What else should we give them if they're inside with chickens?
THANK YOU

Fish-Zole, Flagyl and metronidazole are the same thing. They are used to treat blackhead/histomoniasis in pet poultry. They are banned for use in food animals. http://www.farad.org/eldu/prohibit.asp

I'm still working on a "list", but more important, I think, is to find an Avian with peafowl and/or turkey experience that you trust and can depend on. Shop around, ask them who to call after hours or when they're not available. It's taken me awhile, but I now have a group of vets that I can take a sick pea to 24/7.

My list of "meds" are:

Colloidal Silver (anti viral)
Willard Water (miraculous stuff--see 60 Minutes segment on it here:
)
Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar (helps them absorb more nutrients from their food)
Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth (DE)
Olive Oil (lubrication when egg bound)
Organic Feed (pure, non-toxic nutritious food)
Grass 'n bugs in their free ranging
