    Hello,
    I'm having trouble finding cures of fowl pox. My hen got it a couple days ago when I noticed her eye was swollen, wheezing, breathing through mouth, and brownish reddish scabs on her eye lids and around the nose. I was wondering If anybody could help me find cures for fowl pox. I've been cleaning the snot with saline water>boiled water and salt and I separated her from the flock, I check all my other chickens and they didn't have the scabs or swollen eye. Can the treatment be done at home or do i have to buy a medication for her?[​IMG]

    P.S. Can you eat the sick chickens eggs? We didn't want to egg the eggs because we thought we would get sick. I'll post some picture later.


    Sincerely,
    ChickenGirl3

    I am having about the same symptoms as you with my girls. The dark brown gunk might not be scabs. My girls snot is light brown and dries dark brown and looks a lot like scabs. I put pictures up of them at the bottom of the following page. Click here I hope you aren't dealing with what I am. Poor chickens. [​IMG]
