    I’ve had two chickens die of fowl pox. How to I protect my remaining flock?

    Why did they die? And how? Did they have the wet pox? There's a vaccine for it, otherwise it is mostly transmitted and spread by mosquitoes, so keeping standing water to a minimum can help keep your risk lower. Also don't mess with the lesions to minimize spreading it. Birds who have had it become immune to it.
