    Noticed my 3 Isa browns have small dark lumps on their combs ,looked it up and it looks like avian pox? Is it treatable?Would the vet be able to treat it?Your advice /help would be greatly appreciated,I love them soooooooo much.

    Would have to see a picture, but it could also be just dried blood from them picking at each other. If they are wart-like and raised, I'd say pox, but can't be sure without pics. No need for a vet. Pox will run through and be gone. You can put iodine on the spots if it's pox, but if you could get a clear picture, we'd be better able to tell.

    Yea its probably pox. My flock got this a few months ago. No deaths or anything just ugly scabs. I went to my feed store and bought some anti-biotics and seemed to work fine. Its this little bag that has yellow powder in it and you put a small amount in their water. I also would put neosporin on there scabs so that it would heal faster but I don't know if it actually helped or not. So just chill out, its nothing serious. You should put some pictures up so that we can see what they look like though.
