    I was gone all day yesterday and today I was out giving treats and noticed his face and it is affecting his vision. Have had no other problems with flock only one like this. He is 7 months old wanted to eat treats but couldn't see well. Saw him drinking and preening Did not see if defecate while I was out there. I have som pics but not great my son did something to my camera and LCD screen is all messed up so hard to take pics and he kept moving.

    How is he feeling today? The swollen area looks "crusty" - is it?


    I have no idea what it could be - sorry.

    Everything looks like fowl pox to me now because I have fowl pox (vet confirmed) in my flock. The first thing we noticed in one hen was black, warty, crusty spots on her comb. Our roo had a white spot that turned overnight into black spots, there was no interim yelow bump phase that you sometimes read about. So far, none of our birds has it near their eyes.
