    So I have 1 rooster and 7 hens. They all have came down with the fowl pox and since gotten over them. My light brown leghorn had it about a month ago and has not laid an egg since. She is the smallest hen out of all of them. Is it taking a longer time for her to get over the sickness? I can still see on her comb where the pimples were and it also looks like her comb has shrunk and not as floppy anymore

    Mine all had fowl pox as well and most of them healed themselves within 2 weeks. I have one Buff that still has the scabs but is getting better. As long as they are acting normal, I'd say it's OK.

    She has definitely improved since 1st getting the pox. Hopefully she starts laying soon. She is the only one that gives us white eggs. Thanks!
