We have a small chick - about 1-1.5 months old - and we believe she has fowl pox, a bump on her beak and one by her eye and the bumps keep growing. All the information we've found says there isn't much you can do. The bumps keep getting bigger and bigger and everyone says there's nothing you can do, we're wondering if you should drain them with a needle or if that will make it worse?

Does anyone have any thoughts on if the bump in the picture does in fact look like fowl pox? One of the bumps is starting to bleed. If anyone has any miracle treatments they have tried we'd love to hear about it, we love this little chick very much.

Most of what I have read says to leave the scabs alone, and they will hill in a 2-3 weeks. Some do paint Betadine (povidone iodine) on scabs to help them dry up. Do you have any other chickens with pox? Young chicks seem to have a harder time with dry pox, causing swollen areas around the nostrils and eyes with seeing, eating, and breathing. Wet pox, which causes yellow lesions inside the throat can be deadly. Here is some reading about the disease:

Yep, looks like fowl pox.. we had a few hens get it way back (dry version) and we just lathered the bumps with antibacterial ointment and that seemed to keep them moist and not bother the birds as much. We did that until the bumps fell of eventually.
