    i have found somthing that kills the virus. coldsore cream. yep thats it. i have used it on my flock and within two days the swellings became smaller and on the 5th day the scabs came off to show clean healthy skin.
    i am so happy! this definatly works ive done it to 17 chickens all diferant ages and sizes!
    this is the cure to the long healing proses.
    give it a try beffore you think of culling.

    What is the name of the cream? Can you put it around or on the eyes?

    the name of the cream is zivirax, but i live in Australia so were you are from should have a top of the line cold soar cream. just thought id note , that i gave the chooks face and abdomen a wash once the pox were gone to get rid of any old residue from the cream. as after a while the skin of the chook might start to peel a bit.
    this advice was given by a vet. oh im also giving the chook a captual of gotu kola. you can get it in your health food section.
