    Lesions in hen’s mouth - canker, pox?

    Hi - I noticed two lesions in the mouth of my one year old buff Orpington hen 12 days ago. I took her to the vet as soon as I could, two days after noticing the lesions.

    Hen is wheezing and rattling, small black scab in throat. Fowl pox or something else?

    When I got home from work today to let my chickens out I noticed Lucky wheezing as she was running with the flock.

    Need help with Showgirl Silkie- bumps on neck

    Has anyone seen these bumps before on your showgirls? They just appeared over the last week. One, then three, then more, I don’t think they are mites, as my other showgirl doesn’t have these bumps and I do not see other signs of mites like dried blood. I’m hoping it’s not lymphoid leukosis, but...

    Fowl pox twice?

    Hi, I’m wondering if it’s possible for a chicken to get fowl pox twice. I posted about my hen last year and today she appears to have another white bump on her beak area. I started giving her black pepper again but I’m wondering if it could be something else. Thank you!
