    So it started all with my black australorp who suddenly decided to stop laying eggs, well I thought maybe with her age being unknown she was probably done for good. Well after that I noticed she had poop build up all over her butt so I took her out and inside to find out she had lice :/ so the whole flock got treated. I decided to look her down some more because she wasn't acting right and i found sores all over her!! This morning I went outside and she was hidden in a corner she had labored breathing and didn't want to move are these sores caused by lice or something else?[​IMG]

    my guess is fowl pox if you are saying that they are all over. maybe eggcessive or casportpony could help.

    Can you tell us what parts of her body are the sores on? Is the last one over her breast bone (keel?) The first two look similar, but from different times like an insect or tick bite. The last one looks like some breast blisters look when they get infected. Those occur from sleeping on the ground on a rough or wet surface. Does she sleep on a roost at night?
