Hi there, One week ago, I noticed one medium-sized black spot on Bridget's comb. Now, she has several more. My husband (a small-animal vet, though not an avian one) initially thought it was an injury from hardware cloth because Bridget is always clamoring to get out of her run. He's not so sure anymore. And the spots are only on one side of her comb, and I don't see it on her wattles or eyes. Here's a pic: And here it is after it's been cleaned and a bit scrubbed. Hubby says after removing the scabs, it looks like little craters: Otherwise, she seems pretty healthy. She's very active with a great appetite. Her poop is a little soft, but she has a tendency towards this anyway. Plus, it's been hot. She is laying, though she skipped one day, and last Saturday, she had 2 soft-shelled eggs, which she has a history of, as well. None of our other 5 chickens are affected. Any thoughts? From pictures I've seen, it doesn't really look like avian pox. We've checked for parasites, especially around the vent, and there is nothing. Excuse her dirty head - I think there must be a bit of fluid coming from spots, and the dirt is really sticking to her. Thanks!
