Is this some kind of pox? What do I do? If we butcher her is the meat unhealthy if she's aick?

Doesn't look much like fowl pox. Looks like dry skin or some kind of irritation. You can try ointment to soothe the issue. The bird is entirely edible.

If it is the pox there's nothing you can do except wait for it to run it's course, it can get pretty nasty looking but most are fine.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.
