Looking for some advice on these spots on our hen. Started with a couple other spots that are now gone. Started spraying with vetracyn. A few others have some tiny black spots but not like the one pictured. Am I doing the right thing? Anything else I can do? Thanks.

Looks like dry fowl pox. I did nothing for my rooster who had it. It ended up going away on its own.

Thanks. Do you remember how long it all lasted? I imagine it will probably go through the entire flock as I have noticed that some of the others have some small black areas as well.
It is caused by mosquitos. Looking back at photos, I will say it took a month. :)

My guess is that it scabs up and falls off.
