Hi everyone i recently got a turkey who has come up with these all over his face and neck, from what i can understand fowl pox? he is not sick in any ways shape or form other then this and has a hell of a appetite. asking for second opinions he has been with my chooks for a few weeks now they have no symptoms . would it be too late to vacc them or do i now just ride it out?

Dry Pox    

 

you're too late in the game to vaccinate against it so you just have to let it ride out, it's usually only fatal to very young/old and weak birds.  it can leave scaring and the scabs are very contagious to other birds.
