Customer Question

I found my male peacock on the ground last night instead of the roost. He does not have any obvious wounds. He won't stand up and has his feet curled under him. He appears to be eating and drinking and looks a bit better today. I've got him in a barn now on straw.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Is the bird bleeding a lot?
Customer: No bleeding. No wounds.
JA: What is the bird's name and age?
Customer: Pretty boy is about 3
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Pretty?
Customer: no

I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. We don't have many avian vets on this site. Please let me know if you still need help. May I have an update on Pretty boy, please? Regretfully, his immobility is a nonspecific sign of trauma or illness and not pathognomonic (specifically indicative) of any one particular disorder.
