    One of my cream crested legbar chix has some white on her red crown. Should I be concerned?

    Can you get some pics?
    If they are white spots then it could be the early development of dry pox (fowl pox). If it is fowl pox tahy will eventually turn to scabs, once they have turned to scabs you should apply some betadine each day. It is caused by a virus that enters the bird via a wound.
