    I have no idea on where to even start....


    2 weeks ago she started dropping feathers and the she quit laying. I thought it was because of winter and less daylight but now i'm not sure. She has been eating, drinking, walking around, she has been acting fine. Although, I did see her lean her face towards the ground AND WALK BACKWARDS...I don't even know what that's about.

    Someone told me the feather loss was due to molting but can she be molting AND have pox at the same time?


    Any help would be great!

    How about a close up picture of her face showing all the red areas - - wattles, ear lobes, and combs - - - AND her eyes.

    There should be some tell all scabs indicating fowl pox.
