    What do you think? Fowl Pox? Frostbite? She's the only one of my girls with these spots currently. A while back another bird had some black scabs and white spots also, I though maybe favus but it cleared up on it's own. These pics were taken a couple of days ago, we put antibiotic ointment on her entire comb and it seemed to help. she definitely has tiny raw wounds that look a bit like maybe she was bit, although I think she's my top hen and I haven't seen any fighting going on. If it is fowl pox is it safe to eat the eggs if she's not currently medicated? Thanks in advance!

    It looks like dried blood. Fowl pox is more like a wart looking thing. If you want to treat her you can use neosporin, but when that happens to mine I just let them heal.

    Nice! I thought that was a bit what it looked like but I wanted to check and be sure. Thanks so much!
