The bird was taken for radiography and X-ray revealed a complete transverse fracture of the right tibia bone. Doctors then took the decision of going for intramedullary pinning. The peacock was taken on gas anaesthesia and IM pinning was done. The bird was bandaged using splints post operatively and now the bird is recuperating at our aviary.
