    Help please! I've been a chicken mom for a little over a year and have had nothing but fun raising my girls. Just noticed one of my chickens has a bad eye picture is attached. I sent a pic of the other eye for reference. She just finished molting and I noticed the other girls seem to pick on her. Any idea what's going on with her and how do I get her fixed?

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Yes, she definitely has Fowl Pox judging from the blisters on the comb and wattles. Definitely post in our emergency section for help with her. I hope you can get her back to good health soon! [​IMG]
