    Looking for pics of the throats of chickens afflicted with either wet pox or canker. Do they look different?

    Or even just a description (quantity, size, color, etc.) of the sores of one or the other might help.

    Wet pox will usually have a lot of wetness/exudate from eyes and nostrils.
    Always give Polyvisol enfamil (for the vitamin A) for any of these conditions .
