    Unfortunately the ones without a withholding period only treat round worm. I use fenbendazole and yes it has a withholding period.

    Megans chickens, look up chicken Pox on chickens ( yes chickens get chicken pox too.lol. ).
    It might be that, if not I have no idea.
    Do they rub off, try washing them off.

    It could be bruising or trauma. Try giving them a good wash in warm water and Epsom salts. Fowl pox usually shows up on the comb and face first.

    Really chicken pox? Haha that's funny!! :)
    And nope I haven't tried washing it of as I didn't know if I should or not! But if it is safe to do I will do it tomorrow! If it's chicken pox what do I do then?
