I noticed a day ago this spot on my 4 month old d’Uccle’s comb. Is this fowl pox? I have 21 in my flock and so far do not see spots on any others. I am thinking about vaccinating for fowl pox now. Is it too late? Should I remove him from the flock?

Looks like possible fowl pox. It's a virus transmitted by mosquitoes. It has to run it's coarse, & he'll be immune for life. I think the coarse of the virus runs 3 weeks.
