Hey guys!
So I have 14 hens in my coop.
One of my girls (Rudda) has what I believe is fowl pox. I have read to just leave it alone and let it run it’s course. I have been making sure she is eating and drinking but it has been about 2 months now and the scabs keep appearing and growing but none have gone away. What do I do ?
Thank you !

Fowl pox doesn’t usually last that long, and it usually affects more than one chicken. Could you post any pictures of what you are seeing?

I don’t think that is fowl pox. It could be pecking or other injuries from fencing, although I am not sure about the foot. Does she have bubbles in the right eye with the swollen eyelid? I would probably treat that with Terramycin eye ointment twice a day in the eye. The area over the right side of the beak almost looks like a cyst.
