Hi all!

I am new here and was wondering if anyone had any ideas about the black soot on my chickens comb? These photos are over 2 weeks and as you can see the spot is much bigger! I had thought it was fowl pox but my other hens are all fine.

She seems okay in herself, can still get on top of her coop, but I'm really worried about this spot :(
Any ideas?

It does look a bit like fowl pox, a virus that can last 2-3 weeks, but peck wounds can also resemble pox. Peck wounds are usually very black, while pox can turn from tan into dark brown- black. Peck wounds can take a month or more to heal.
