Since it has been raining for 3 days straight I haven't been spending much time in the chicken coop. When I went out today to check on everyone this is what I found. One of my bantam cochins has bumps all over her face and her ear is swolen. Does anyone know what this could be and how I can fix it?

I was about to start a thread when I saw this one. I have the same thing going on with my BO pullet. She is about 6 months old and has not begun laying. She has two lesions on her head and one on her upper neck that look exactly like the ones in the OP's pic. I had noticed the feathers sitting funny about a week ago and just figured my roo had gotten a bit rough with her. Tonight she is having trouble walking ( not sure if she was being picked on). I know she has been eating well although I noticed she seemed light tonight. Her eyes look clear but I am concerned about Merek's.

OP- I hope all turns out well with your (our) birds.


I will be following this thread to see if any more experienced members have an idea of what we are dealing with.

Thanks GA. I really don't think what I am dealing with is pox. These lesions are hard, almost like a boil.

OP- Is the lump on your bird's ear near or actually inside of the ear? Does it have any more larger ones in other places? Does she have any other symptoms?
