I wanted to ask about two young birds who may have been exposed to Fowl Pox. Two weeks ago, I put two chicks (about 2 months old now, fully feathered) outside in a coop by themselves with a heat lamp for the chilly nights. Today, two of my four adult birds are showing definite signs of fowl pox. What I had mistaken for mosquito bites are now looking warty. It's definitely the dry pox, not wet pox. All birds are eating and drinking normally, and are being given extra treats like plain yogurt, scrambled eggs and lots, lots of fresh water. My question is, are the two previously mentioned chicks at all protected from the fowl pox by not being allowed to physically mix with the sick birds? Or is being in the same yard close enough proximity that they would be exposed too? The chicks are complaining loudly about not being allowed to scratch. I just want to see if I'm doing any good by keeping them cooped.
