I first noticed tiny black spots on my exchequer leghorn’s comb about a month ago, but didn’t think much of it because they’re acting normal otherwise. When I looked closely today, I noticed the spots have spread a little and the rooster has them too (photos attached).

I’m really hoping someone can help figure out what’s going on. For background, I live in NY & it’s been mild/humid lately. We have a lot of mosquitoes.
I have 8 chickens & 2 geese in the coop total, and only these two have it. I put some apple cider vinegar in a supplemental water-er, hoping it provides a little immune system boost.
Any ideas on what this is/how worried I should be?

I have several hens with Fowl Pox. They look just like your pictures. It will keep infesting if not treated. I have a flock of 19 hens and most of them have the POX. Treat as soon as possible to keep it from infecting your whole flock. Good luck.
