    Looks more like pecks or scratches. If it's pox it will get way worse before it gets better, but I don't think it is pox. There's no treatment or cure, it runs it course in about 6 weeks.

    WET MASH PROBIOTIC RECIPE FOR CHICKENS WITH ANY HEALTH PROBLEMS
    Glenda Heywood

    WET MASH PROBIOTIC RECIPE FOR YOUR CHICKENS HEALTH.
    ACV by Bragg's is sold by Amazon and at Walmart. (remember to get Bragg's as it has the "brown mother" in the bottom of the bottle.)

    ...
    My Daughter JoAnna Mertz feeds this wet mash probiotic several times a week to our 10 hens, 5 buff orpingtons 5plymouth rocks, and they are eating it up in 30 minutes.

    To make the WET MASH PROBIOTIC RECIPE HERE IT IS
    (A) TAKE 2 CUPS OF DRY CRUMBLES OR PELLETS,
    (B) 1 TSP OF DRY FLAX SEED MEAL (THAT IS FOR HUMANS)
    (C) PUT 4 CUPS OF MILK ANY KIND SOUR OR FRESH, 1 tbsp of dry flax seed meal,
    (D) AND 2 TBSP OF THE UNPASTURIZED ACV.

    (E) ALSO 1 /2 CUP OF UNFLAVORED YOUGART.

    (F) MIX GOOD. PUT IT IN GLASS CONTAINER, AND KEEP ON THE COUNTER OVER NIGHT.

    (G) IF IN THE MORNING YOU CAN ADD MORE MILK TO THE MIX TO MAKE IT SOLUBLE, like cookie dough, not soupy,

    (H) DO NOT MAKE IT SOUPY AS CHICKENS DO NOT LIKE IT SOUPY.

    (I) IF THE MIX IS OKAY IN THE MORNING AND NOT TOO DRY FEED IT IN THE GLASS CONTAINER SO ALL THE CHICKENS CAN GET TO IT.

    (J I USED 2 VERY LARGE GLASS PIE PLATES. AND THEN CLEAN THE PIE PLATES BY BRING THEM BACK TO THE HOUSE.

    (K) FEED THIS AMOUNT TO EACH CHICKEN 3 tbsp of mix when wet, so make your recipe to fit all amount of chickens to be fed

    (L) WHEN MIXING FOR 1 CHICKEN DO THISIE: take 3 tbsp of dry feed and add 6 tbsp of milk, 1/4 tsp of dry flax seed meal, 1 tbsp of yougart plain kind, 1 tsp ACV,

    (M) NOW IF THE CHICKEN IS SICK ADD THIS TO THE WET MASH PROBIOTIC RECIPE

    (N) 1 Vit E capsule buy cutting end of capsule off and squeezing it into the wet mix.
    (O) 1-Vit B tablet crushed in table spoon and add a little water to disolve crushed tablet and then add to wet mash

    (P) 1- Selenium tablet crushed in tbsp and add little water to it and then add to wwet mash.
    (Q) now mx good and feed sick chuicken evey day for 7 days

    (R) now feed it 5 times for second week.

    (S) then 2 times a week for life

    (T) feed all healthy chickens 2 times a week for life WITH VITAMINS ONCE EVERY TWO WEEKS

    OR ny chicken on medication for any and all disease: IE: SUCH AS

    (1)A A NOTE HERE IS ABOUT WHEN CHICKENS HAVE COCCIDIOSIS YOU HAVE TO WAIT TILL THEY ARE OFF THE MEDICATION AT THE END OF 7 DAYS TO GIVE THE VITAMIS BECAUSE OF THIS FACT:
    (2) IE::
    Amprolium interferes with the coccidia oocyst’s ability to metabolise vitamin B so you may need to provide your chickens with a vitamin B supplement following treatment – but don’t give them this during treatment as you might render it ineffective.

    It could be but also she's not laying eggs. She recently was broody but unfortunately the 2 chicks that hatched died as well as the other eggs but this was like 2-3 weeks ago. I'm just reallu concerned for her, these are my first set of chickens.

    It usually takes longer for them to resume laying after being broody and allowing to set as opposed to breaking them from it. Generally 4-8 weeks for most hens, but even longer for a few others.

    Even if it was pox there's nothing you can do anyways but let it run it's course.
