    Hello, that could be fowl pox. It's a virus that is spread by misquitos biting. When a chicken gets this virus, it usually isn't too bad. They get the pox marks on their combs and wattles, and sometimes near their eyes, but usually the chickens do pretty well and it clears up on it's own.
    Once they've had it, they become immune to the virus.
