I’ve raised them from chicks and they are 2. I’ve dealt with a few black spots on combs before but this seems worse. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks!

    Dry fowl pox is fairly common, and most chickens recover. But wet pox which can cause yellow patches inside the beak, throat, airway, and crop, can cause them to stop eating and die. With any that seem weak, have a look into the beak with a flashlight. There can be a decrease in egg laying. Fowl pox is much harder on young chicks.

    I don't know a whole lot about chickens, I'm fighting my own battle with my nine month baby goat,but I've raised everything from birds to squirrels. It looks to me like a fungus or a parasite. Did you try any antibiotic creams? When I bread Rottweiler s and shelties. I've seen stuff like this. I used bacitracin ointment to prevent infection on the skin. And Watkins petro carbo salve. It works wonders.
