    If you are only seeing black dots, then (assuming it is fowl pox) it is dry and will usually clear up in a couple of weeks. It could be simply scabs caused by biting insects also.

    Good luck

    Welcome to BYC.

    You should consider getting pic of the affected areas and post under emergencies for more opinions.

    Hope this is nothing serious.
