Correct me if I'm wrong please, but didn't your guys and gals get pox last year? I had one contract it, I inoculated all my chicks and adults and have been lucky, know on wood! No more problems since!
How are you dealing with it or addressing it! Just curious ! It took forever , about 6 weeks, for the one to get rid of it.
Yes they did! Last year the flock all had wet pox and it was just terrible. What I kept of last year's flock (adults) did not get pox this year. However more than half of my pullets (Easter hatch and younger) got the dry pox. One got wet pox and I immediately isolated her in my bathroom, but nothing else. Some had scabs and some had snotty noses, but no lesions.
This year I didn't do anything for it, except for moving the one inside for several weeks. The lesions weren't nearly as disgusting, just looked like pox instead of like warty cauliflower. And it seemed like only the girls with biggest combs were affected; EEs and orp mixes, and the younger pullets) had very few if any scabs.
I'm treating one EE with tylan for an eye/respiratory thing, probably related to pox.
Did I cover everything?
