    LARGE BLACK Growths on our chicken's comb, wattles, and mouth- Please Help?!? S.O.S!!!!

    Hi Eveybody, we need some big time help. Our 1 year old chicken, Jen, started having some black dots appear on her comb and wattles about 3 weeks ago and I figured they were foul pox and the pox and spots would begin to clear on their own. That hasn't happened- in fact, it's been just the...

    Who else had FMS

    I have it too. I got it from a very difficult back labor with my son 7 years ago. It is a hard road but finding a Dr. that will work with you will make all the difference in the world! I don't have very much support from my DH. He seems to think that it's just an excuse to be lazy. I wish! I...
