I just logged on after washing the feet of my rooster who is also getting over Fowl Pox. I noted that the feather shafts at the base nearest the skin are also inflamed. I looked at his feet and it actually looks a little like the pox on his face, although not as bad. Could there be 2 things going on? The pox and mites? *sigh* If it's not one thing it's another! Will pouring on mineral oil help, as I've read vegetable and olive oil will?
