    I have been noticing these little black spots on my chicken's combs and wattles. I am wondering if it could be fowl pox? They are all 23 weeks old. We have LOTS of mosquitos. Also, is it ok to be eating their eggs if they do in fact have fowl pox?

    Here are a few pictures of one of the chicken's comb/wattles:

    If it is fowl pox, is there anything I can put on it/give the chicken to get rid of it?

    Thanks in advance. [​IMG]
