This morning we lost a hen that we are caring for for friends to what we believe to be diptheritic fowl pox - affecting her respiratory system. To be confirmed by autopsy.
A couple of other hens in the flock are showing signs of cutaneous pox - but not showing any respiratory signs at this stage thankfully.
I'm wondering if anyone has any experience in managing an outbreak of fowl pox?
We are looking into vaccinating the well birds, but is there anything else we should be doing?
