In the Brooder
- Jul 2, 2008
I just noticed yesterday that one of my RIRs has one black warty looking spot on her comb. From looking around on this site I am pretty sure it's fowl pox. One post suggested giving Fish Zole - is this an antibiotic? Where do I get it and how do I give it to my girls? Will it keep it from going to wet pox? I also saw some recommendations to check inside the chicken's mouth - just how does one open a chicken's mouth? I tried but she wasn't too cooperative! So far only one other hen seems to have any spots, but I know it can go through all 8 of them (mosquito control is out of the question where I live in Florida). Thanks for your help!
