    Both of my 2 1/2 months old barred cochin have dry fowl pox since about 3 1/2 weeks ago. Both had a black wart that grew on their eyelids, and they both tried to take it out before it falls off by itself. Today, they peeled a part of their eyelid, while trying to take out the black wart. Is the eyelid going to regenerate?

    Time will tell. I had some with those black growths last year with the pox. Really odd. Some had them on their beaks and if they tore the bumps off too early there was a hole in the beak! Their beaks filled in the holes so maybe the eye lid will too. I would think it would depend on the severity.
