Hi, some of our flock seem to have developed fowl pox. Has anybody had fowl pox in their flock? Is it worth vaccinating a bird who doesn’t have it in our flock? (Ours is a flock of three, 2 might have it but one seems healthy.)

Welcome To BYC

Can you post some photos?
It really depends on where you live and how severe the Fowl Pox is. If dry Fowl Pox and it's resolving in several weeks, then likely you don't need to vaccinate your birds.
Once they go through having Fowl Pox the will have built resistance.
