    I don't know that watery eyes are indicative of pox. Watery eyes and facial swelling seem more like coryza than pox. Do they have a nasty smell coming from their faces?

    I have never dealt with wet pox. Only dry pox. I think before you cull you should establish if it is necessary. Can you separate the sick and healthy birds? At least until you have a better idea of what you are dealing with?

    When my chicken had fowl pox.
    Its eye got watery, bubbling and irritated.
    But i think thats because the pox mark was so close to the eye
