    I know they might have a small case of Avian Pox but I was out with my girls and boy today and noticed some changes to June's comb and all. Don't know if this is normal or if I need to medicate her with something, or separate her. They seem to be eating and drinking well, laying and friendly as well.[​IMG]

    Although I have never had his problem before, i do suggest, like any wound, to keep it clean. Hopefully it will heal over, but if it continues to worsen you may want to consult a vet.
