    My 6 month old bantam d'Uuncle has a "warty" dark spot on her comb, eye and face side. Should I be worried and if so what is it and what do I do? Thanks

    Sounds like pox. Treat with iodine.

    YES SOUNDS LIKE FOWL POX AND IS THE TIME OF THE YEAR FOR IT TO GO AROUND
    have you been to any fairs or chicken shows lately? this time of the year is when they will have it at shows
    Also when vaccinating DO NOT GO TO ANY OTHER PERSONS FARM OR ANY SHOWS FOR 30 DAYS. As you will carry the infection to them or the birds will give it to others at the shows.

    IF YOU HAVE SEVERAL BIRDS GET THE CHICKEN FOWL POX VACCINE AND VACCINATE EVERY BIRD ON THE PLACE
    IT WILL SAVE YOU A LOT OF HEAD ACHES.

    DOCTOR THE BIRDS SPOTS WITH IODINE AND ALSO GIVE THE BIRDS SOME WET MASH PROBIOTICS

    3 TBSP OF DRY CRUMBLE FEED
    4 TBSP OF MILK
    1 TBSP OF YOGUART
    when mixed put tbsp of apple sauce on the wet mash
    I would do this twice a day for two weeks

    if it is fowl pox and you vaccinate DO NOT GIVE ANY ANTIBIOTICS TO THE BIRDS

    as the vaccine needs to give the birds a small setting of the fowl pox to be innoculating the birds
    vaccinate the chicks as well as the adults.every bird on the place.

    any questions email me
