    That does look like it might be pox. Is the chick still eating and drinking?

    It indeed looks like fowl pox, let it run its course. Fowl pox are similar to human chicken pox, once they are infected it they will be considered carriers but, immune from the virus itself. Healthy birds rarely die from the infection, monitor the bumps for any further infections and the bird should be back to normal in 10-14 days.the pox virus is transferred via blood normally by mosquitoes, i suggest you remove all standing waters that can promote mosquito larvae,.
