Dark growths on combs

I'm noticing some dark, bumpy growths on a few of my chickens. It's on their combs, & one chicken has it near her eye. Possibly Fowl Pox?

Any ideas?

looks like fowl pox. You can apply antiseptic to the scabs, and you'll need to remove any scabs that have a chance of obstructing the chicken's ability to see or eat. There isn't a treatment, (or so I hear) and if you want to prevent this in the future, you need to vaccinate your hens. here's a helpful site: https://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/pdffiles/VM/VM02100.pdf you should sepperate the affected hens.
