i have a roo that has black spots all over his comb.what should i do?
Nothing. It'll go away on its own in time.
It is like chicken pox in kids, viral, you can not treat them for it, it will slowly spread through you flock ( think of the way kids have chicken pox and spead it to other kids ) You do need to watch out for secondary infections and treat for those, as long as it stays dry all should be okay, it takes 4 to 6 weeks to resolve, could be longer if you have a large flock.
We had it here this summer, took two months to make it through and get resolved in our flock of 90 birds, lost 2 out of the 90 to secondary infections.
Good luck with your birds, they should be immune to it again.
thank you guys for the help!
