Could be fowl pox, but it could also be dried blood from them pecking each other. Do you have a picture?

Having an Icelandic in the coop is like having a 2 year old in the house - they are into everything and don't follow the rules.

Hi Happy Chooks! I am new to BYC and noticed your post while I was researching Fowl pox. Sorry to "butt" in but I believe my miniature chicken (MinMin) has fowl pox dry to be specific. I have seen so many different things about dry and wet Pox, that wet is the one thats supposed to be worse but then I saw that dry is the bad one and harder to get rid of. If you don't mind private messaging me that would be awesome thank you so much.
