    Is this fowl pox?
    And do you think they will be ok for Thanksgiving?
    Thank You

    Hey, I've never had foul pox with my turkeys but my chickens had it. It could be foul pox or if you have more than one gobbler than they could be fighting. If it is foul pox then I wouldn't eat it but I know some people do so it's up to you

    That looks more like fighting injuries than fowl pox to me.

    Now that you mention it, I don’t think any of the hens have marks. I’ll have to check them

    I just checked 4 hens 4 toms. Only the toms have any marks and it’s worse on the two small ones.

    I feel a lot better now
    Thanks
