    Hi folks. I am worried about my five baby Swedish Flower Hens. They are about two days old. They seem just fine. Mommy does too, but she has black lesions on her comb and wattles. I believe it is dry fowl pox.

    What should I do, if anything, for the little guys? Should I vaccinate? If so, what to get and where to get it?
