    I just noticed these black/blue and some white bumps/spots on my roo's comb and wattle. Then I checked the ladies and a couple of them have some too. They are all acting fine. What are these? Should I be concerned?

    Thanks.

    I'm not sure what they are. I've had similar bumps show up on my roosters. I dab them with Blu-kote, and they clear up.

    Thanks. It does kind of look like the avian pox (why isn't it called chicken pox? [​IMG]). There is much info on treating it though. I will Google and ask some friends and feed stores what they know about it. I wonder if the eggs are still ok to eat?
