    I noticed yesterday that my black Silkie rooster had sores all over his head and around his comb. I searched the net and
    Fowl Pox is what best describes how he looks. One of his eyes is swollen shut and has white pus in it also. What can I do to
    treat it and the rest of my flock. I am going to inspect all the other chickens this a.m. to make sure there aren't more that have it. I would appreciate input from anyone that can help me out on this. I have no idea what to do to treat it...this is my first flock of chickens and they are 7 months old.
  2. I can't help you treat it but I do know this much you need to get that one away as far away as you can from the others and hope it is the only that has it..

    Good luck to you
