    I got this roo as a gift but he has scabs on both his comb and the largest is on his wattle. Is this fowl pox? If so what are the treatments? They come off easily and dont leave an open wound when removed - only the one on the wattle seems deep or leaves an opening.

    It looks like dry fowl pox, but I'm no expert. No cure, so just monitor the situation and treat the open wound area with iodine or mild saline solution once the scabs fall off would be my suggestion.

    All the best
