    Hi! Thank you to all who have helped to identify what my roo has as favus. Now I am trying to find a good solution. In past threads, I have read about miconazole and am trying that. Did this work for anyone? Is there anything else I should do/try? I don't want to cull, but is that the best option? He is (of course) our favorite roo, his brother is scheduled for the pot, but it may need to be him. So far no others show signs of favus. Thanks!

    Great, thanks! All I found so far said the miconazole. But will try the other.!
