    What do y’all do if your birds develop Fowlpox around butchering time?
    I believe some of my turkeys have it and was going to butcher them in 6 days. I know humans can’t get it but I never had an issue like this before.
    Can I get y’alls thoughts?
    Thank you

    Hopefully others will chime in.

    My answer is....I don't know! :confused:

    Now...that said, I have a link to a "meat manual for developing countries".
    You may find that helpful. A lot, I would think depends on the severity of the Fowl Pox, whether it's Wet or Dry Form http://www.fao.org/docrep/003/t0756e/T0756E08.htm#ch7.1.5
