    I have noticed in the past few days (maybe like 8 days) my chickens have been getting spots on their comb and wattle. (the red thing on the top of their head and the red thing below their head.) The spots have been getting bigger and expanding outward. I don't know whats wrong but its on all the chickens. Is it normal?
    Here's a picture of my barred rock, Blanca before she had them.... don't judge her name I know she isn't all white... [​IMG]

    Definitely fowlpox. My flock contacted dry fowlpox this summer, likely from Mosquitos. It's taken about 4 months to clear out.
