We have 12 Golden Sex Links and today I had to euthanize one. They are 18 months old and currently going through their first molt. I took the chicken (Loretta) to our regular vet and she diagnosed it with fowl pox. Since she indicated that this virus may spread throughout my flock, I started researching and this is the info I have located thus far. Isolate, & vaccinate (where the pox is prevalent). Further, if many of the birds vaccination sites do not swell and scab over in 7-10 days, I can re-vaccinate with a new batch of vaccine. I have been advised that the disease spreads slowly and may be stopped in its tracks by vaccinating while the disease is still in progress. I assume this means that I should examine each bird to determine if I see any lesions. I had the dry form of the virus which showed wart-like nodules on the comb, wattles, ear lobes, eyes and sometimes the feet. I have been told to remove the lesions (but I don't know how). I also need to add tetracycline to the water for 3 days (which I have already purchased) as well as a vitamin supplement for 2-4 weeks (no clue as what to buy). I know where to purchase the vaccine, but have no idea as how to vaccinate a chicken. Me and my "girls" are in real trouble here, and I would greatly appreciate any advice anyone may have. Thanks so much!
