2 of my turkeys and 4 chickens have it. I just worked a bunch that are at another pen thru it and now my large group is crusting up. One hen even has her eye scabbed shut. I'm medicating the water with agrimyacin and feeding medicated crumbles to them too,also have coated scabs with iodine or no peck. My last bunch got thru it in about 2-3 weeks but they just had some on the nostril area and on some combs. Now it's horrible especially the turkeys. It's scabbed covered the head,throat and around the eyes. I keep my pens clean,dust them,spray them out, everything and wham,,pox. I haven't introduced a new bird in 4 months,and those were quarantined away for 2 months.I'm almost over it and ready to just start trapping hogs again and hunting turkeys instead of raising them.......very frustrated,,,,how about you?
