Few days ago my chickens where fighting and some had some peck marks and one had a swollen face they all have alcohol and antibiotics applied to their wounds but i have also been reading about fowlpox and it looks quite similar like this she had some and they fell off and the skin a little yellow and went back to red they all eat normally if anyone know if this is from peck or scratches or something else

Not sure where in the world you are located but fowl pox is spread by mosquitoes.

If you have mosquitoes still active it could be dry fowl pox. there are two kinds of fowl pox. They are commonly called dry pox and wet pox.

Fowl pox is a virus so there is not much you can do to "cure" it. Just what you are already doing to treat the spots.

Since there aren't mosquitoes around I would treat it like peck marks then. Watch that one by her eye and be extremely careful if applying anything to it.
