    Ok so today I found out that my 4 barred rock hens have pox and I am giving them baby vitamins and putting iodine on the affected areas. While I was doctoring them I looked at their nostrils and eyes very closely and checked their mouths to see if it was the wet or dry kind (looking like dry so far) and I noticed some tiny rice like things in my favorite hens nose. I was able to wipe one out with a q tip and with a little maneuvering I got the other few out. I couldn't get a picture because they were so little. But I can't for he life of me figure out what it was.

    They eat and drink like normal. I just went and bough them crickets today and they gobbled them up no problem.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated..

    It could be feed dust or other debris.
