I've been dealing with skin issues with my flock for a couple of months now. At first I thought they were having eye issues, as the areas around the eyes were very crusty. At that time, I was applying Terramycin, but nothing improved. Then I started applying Vaseline to the areas, thinking it was dry skin, but after a couple of days it's back to the chalking/powdery white stuff.
I've recently been looking at pictures online and I was thinking it may possibly be Favus. If it is, I'm not sure how they got it. Can anyone tell me whether this is what I'm dealing with? If it is, I've read that I should apply athlete's foot cream on the areas. Applying athlete's foot cream around the eye area makes me so nervous. So before I do anything, please let me know your thoughts.
Are there any pills that I can give them that would get rid of it both internally and externally?
Here's some pics that I just took:
