Sores on my chickens

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

This morning my 8 week old Cornish Giants were fine.  Tonight there are several with open sores either on the top, outside of their wing or on their back.  They are acting fine and eating.  Help!

Before you criticize someone. You should walk a mile in their shoes.
That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away from them and you have their shoes

Google it. There is treatment. Althought no one is going to be able to make an accurate diagnosis without more information, better descritptions, or even pictures.

Fowl pox usually appears on unfeathered areas only, like combs, wattles, legs.

Do you have a rooster in with these chickens?

Googled it.  Nothing like the pictures or descriptions.  Only one sore on each bird, and nothing on face, legs, etc.

There are 2 roosters, 8 hens, all 8 weeks old.

Has anyone ever had a problem with grubs?

Sometimes roosters will cause injuries on the backs and necks of hens through mating or attempts at mating. I don't know if this is what's going on or not. Can you post pictures?
