    I think just kill it n eat it for dinner, the disease will spread to other chickens n to other pets too

    If you cull her, do NOT eat her. You can get sick if you eat a sick chicken.

    Serioulsy? You can get sick eating a sick chicken? Even cooked to the proper temperature of 165F? Not that I would eat a chicken with pox, but what if a chicken was sick and you didn't know it?

    I don't know about getting sick, which IS actually somewhat possible, but its definitely not Kosher. I would be extremely upset if I came over for dinner and was served a sick or dying bird.

    And on the note of it spreading it to others...We have burn pit to stop that ;)

    But FYI, it does look like pox
