    My PBR seems to have a growth near her eye. Its not open or seeping, just a round lump. Was wondering if it"s something I should be concerned about? The other side of her face does not look that way, nor does her "sister". Thank you in advance!

    So far it didn't look like the pox picture. There is only one that I saw, and her comb looked normal. I will keep a close eye on it.

    Went out while they were on the roost and did see a few blackish spots here and there on a few of the hens. there weren't too many, and they weren't that big. Not sure if you can see them in the pics or not.

    Does look like pox. Glad to read it isn't generally fatal. But, hate to see them with anything wrong. Might head to the feed store to get something and try the ACV. I will also give the coop a good cleaning, along with bleaching the feed and water dish. (I usually do it once every 2 weeks, and wipe it out often in between.)

    None of the blemishes were any bigger today. If it is pox, would it be a mild case, or does it take a while to come out more?
