    I have been in the chat room and someone mentioned fowl pox, i read up on it, so is it true there is no cure, not sure thats what he has but i can scrape those spots off and photos i saw doesn't really look like it , my question is should i start him on Terramycin? i caught my other roo today and noticed he has some black spots to....but they have not been around each other, im worried so any help would be so greatly appreciated Thanks

    antibiotics will only help with secondary infections (internal or "wet" pox)
    If it is pox then those areas will become nodular and pussy and spread out.
    You can treat these areas best by applying iodine

    thanks you so much dlh , more i look at it and ive examined him thourghly he has a bald patch on his back, his legs look a little rough like his feathers were plucked, i think he must have been in with another Roo and was beat up but i will treat him with iodine because im sure that can only help....again thanks for your reply

    Yeah, don't know about that eye, but that comb looks normal. They can get pecked on or caught on feeders, sharp edges and so on easily.

    The comb looks alright to me too.

    If it's a stye, you can try warm compresses...There used to be a product at the pharmacy specifically for styes...
