    I can't enlarge your photo, but Google fowl pox and see if that looks correct. As I understand, it can't be cured, it has to run its course. Mix a small jar of Vaseline and 1tsp of sulfur (get it at farm stores) and rub on all your chickens combs and wattles.

    Use the Vaseline and sulphur, rub it on all your chickens combs and wattles. It helps, but pox has to run its course.
