    I noticed a white bump on my hen the other day and it looked like a bug bite. not sure if it could be an ant or mosquito bite. there's one on my other girls jawl too. All the avian pox stuff on here has me freaking out. i just started getting eggs monday and now this is happening. What do I do? I was thinking about putting some neosporin on it. Sorry the pics aren't great...she's not good at keeping her head still.

    You can just wait and see. No need to freak. Fowl pox is normally not very life threatening nor seems to affect them very much. You can put neosporin on it if you want but you don't have to . Now if they develop secondary problems from this or get wet pox you may want to respost for help but for now just watch how they do but no real need for worry.
