    Some hens we recently got but have kept separate from our own have fowl pox, instead of the "rooster injuries" they supposedly had. Now what? I'm tempted to give them back, but 1) my others could already be infected from mosquitos 2) I feel kind of guilty about doing it...sort of like I'm rejected an adopted child (though I'd be happy to take them back later once they are healed, and the home they came from is already dealing with a flock wide infection.

    Is there any sort of treatment for them? Thanks for any suggestions!

    There is no treatment for it you just have to wait it out.

    They look really bad going through it, hope they get better soon. [​IMG]

    You may want to give them some Avian Charge 2000 & some cooked eggs to help speed there recovery. ACV w/mother & garlic wouldn't hurt either.
