    Ok another problem I have is fowl pox on my Roo's comb. It started small, but in the last year it is almost over his whole comb.
    I read that it is not harmful, but is unsightly.
    This Roo is not tame, the only time I might get a hold of him is at night, but he roosts up on the top board in the chicken house!!
    Nothing is ever simple[​IMG]
    Any ideas of how to deal with this problem?

    Fowl pox is a virus that runs it's course in about 6 weeks, it doesn't last for a year. Posting a photo may help identify what your rooster has.
