Thanks in advance
Hi! Sorry you are having trouble. It's great that you researched. There isn't a lot you can do. With a small flock, if it is dry pox, it should run it's course fairly quickly. Don't disturb the scabs. You can decrease the viral load by daily cleaning and bedding changes. If you notice decreased appetite or activity you could add vitamin electrolyte to their water and offer scrambled eggs, yogurt, etc.. I would close your flock for at least a couple months (nobody in or out) and until all symptoms are gone for 30 days before adding any new chickens. Prior to adding new chickens, I also would thoroughly disinfect the coop with a 1/10 bleach solution and discard all bedding. Nothing can be done for a run area other than time, heat and sunlight.
Mosquitoes are carriers, so vector control is helpful. Best of luck to you both!

For absolute best practice, unless you add vaccinated pullets, I would wait at least 30 days after the last lesion has cleared. I'd wonder where your hens contracted it, if you have carrier mosquitoes, it may be a gift that keeps on giving.
Sure. You can dab them with iodine to help dry them. Don't pick at the scabs. i don't think you need to add anything if they are acting normally. Good quality food, clean water and keep an eye. You've got this.
