Hello,
I have a 6 month old Serama hen, she is very small. I started seeing signs when she had red on the corner of her eyes and then a week later I saw that bumps were growing around her eye area and her eyes are shut. Is this the life cycle of fowl pox or is it something else? Her comb is slightly swollen but I have been applying alcohol around her eyelids to dry out the skin. She is actively eating all by herself and she does groom herself. She seems perfectly normal but just that her eyes are problematic. Is this the life cycle of fowl pox or is it something else? She has had it for about 2 weeks now.





 
Please don't use alcohol in or near the eyes. An antibiotic ointment from the feed store would be appropriate, or you could use brand name plain Neosporin ointment. Actually I doubt I would ever use alcohol on a wound as it is so painful.

I have no idea whether that is fowl pox, but if it is, it will go away at three weeks.
