Can anyone tell me what this is? And what do I do to treat it? 3 of my 4 pullets have it. My 3 adult hens and the newly laying pullet don't.

It is either a mild case of fowl pox or peck marks from the older birds. Either way, unless it gets worse, I wouldn't worry about it. Fowl pox will clear itself up in a few weeks. If it's peck marks from the older birds, hopefully they will settle themselves in a few weeks too.

Thank you! The older birds leave these three alone for the most part. The smallest pullet (same age just smaller in stature and ironically the only one laying so far) is the only one that is still getting pecked by the "big girls".

Thank you!!!! Will avian pox affect eggs if the other girls get it?
