fowl pox can be treated a number of ways.  If you look in the emergency/disease section of the forum, there are a number of stickies which will give you some really good advice.

Welcome to BYC. Fowl pox is transmitted by mosquitos. There arnt any treatments because it is a virus. It has to run its course which takes about 2-4 weeks. They will be immune to it afterwards. Iodine can help dry the nodules and scabs, they are infectious to other chickens. The eggs are safe to eat.
