Thank you! Really helpful information!Use Terramycin eye ointment in their eyes for bacterial infection, just a little in the eye is all that is needed. You can use neosporin in a pinch.
You can use iodine on the scabs to help shrink them. Avoid the eyes when using iodine. You can also use black shoe polish, it will help shrink the scabs and prevent picking. The scabs are infective. Eggs are safe to eat. Once the fowl pox virus runs its course, your birds will be immune to that particular strain. It took about 6 weeks to run though my flock when I lived in Georgia.
Consider providing your birds a supplement of vitamins and minerals in their water. It will help boost their immune system. I recommend Avian Super Pack
