Hi Halima,
I am glad that the information I have given you is useful. It is great to get feedback.
I am not sure whether it is safe to give dog worming tablets to your peafowl but you can get a wormer called Verm-X specially for poultry or game birds which can be added to their water or can also come in pellet form and added to their food.
With regards to the peachicks legs. Does it have splayed legs and do they need re-aligning with a bandaid? Check out this post about splayed legs in quail. http://www.farmingfriends.com/splayed-legs-in-quail/ Let me know what the legs are like or send me a photo via email of the chick and it’s legs and I will see if I can help further.
Hope this information helps.
Kind regards
