Hello
I have a few Brahma chicks that are so far active and doing well. However today I noticed some wound/ blister around their break and eye area. Can anyone help me what it is?

Probably fowlpox, a virus that is usually transmitted via mosquito. It usually effects the non feathered areas like comb, wattles and face. I did find some pictures with similar lesions on the beak. Dry pox usually runs it's course with no real issues. Lesions near the eye can sometimes cause a secondary infection in the eye, so if that were to happen then an eye ointment like Terramycin can be used, depending on where you are located that may be available at your local feed store or Tractor Supply. Since yours are young i would keep an eye on them to make sure they continue to eat and drink well. Here are some links that may help:

Yes I checked from a vet, he said it's fowl pox... He gave me a solution to clean the blisters with it . Will start in morning
Did he tell you to quarantine the bird and to dispose of it's bedding in the trash? Be sure not to cross contaminate any food dispensers, etc. (I wore surgical gloves to handle the bird or any of it's bedding, etc.)
