    Good morning all yesterday received very helpful knowledge on my girls. Fowl pox, 2 out of 3 of my babies seem to have it. Please what kind of treatment should I do to clean them up? Thanks

    Not much you can do for fowl pox since it's a virus, let it run its course. It might take 2-4 weeks plus or minus. There are 2 types of fowl pox,; dry and wet. Wet fowl pox in the most dangerous. Fowl pox is normally carried by mosquitos, drain anything that holds water (except waterers of course.) Here's link for you:

    You can dab the facial lesions with some dilute iodine to help dry them up.

    No need to dilute the iodine. Gotta be very careful that it doesnt run into the eyes, nostrils, mouth.
