    Maybe I'm reading this information incorrectly. I can vaccinate if they're not sick and younger than 10 weeks but after that point it must run it's course?

    Yes, once they have it, it is too late to vaccinate. You might want to do some asking around in our emergency section. I have never vaccinated against fowl pox, so I am just not sure. :)

    [​IMG] Glad you joined us!

    I agree with the other posters--it looks like your hen has Fowl Pox. Fortunately, the disease isn't usually fatal, and your bird should recover in 2-6 weeks on her own.

    Good luck with her!
