    I have 3 turkey gobblers that have had a sudden outbreak of pox. I've had dry pox in the past, but never the "wetpox" form. With the wetpox the turkeys are not eating so I am hand feeding them. How long does it usually take for the wetpox to run its course and eventually dry up? I vaccinated all my turks for fowlpox last year as juveniles. Didn't do it this year as adults. Guess I've learned my lesson here. Ironically none of my 12 hens have had an outbreak, only the gobblers!
