    Hi guys,
    I have two India blues about 3 months old running around with chickens. I recently went through a ivermectin treatment for all birds here and was doing the second dose tonight, 11 days after the initial dose. I also have them all on medicated feed and have treated 3 eye infections in my bantam cochins with tylan 200. I have also provided whole wheat kernels, cracked corn, and oat bran as scratch along with various leftover veggies. The peacocks have not been flying as much this past week and had no idea why but they are eating well. I went to dose them tonight and when I lifted the wing was met with farmy poop-like smell. One wing had what looked like yellowish pus under it near the shoulder. The skin has peeled off in many areas and fresh good looking white skin is there with the old yellowish nasty skin peeling nearby. Is this a fungus or something? Tomorrow we will treat with warm bathe, blow dry, and powder them with food grade DE then possibly retreat with ivermectin. Any ideas or is it fungus, maybe I killed worms?

    this is gonna sound terrible but i have the same thing under my arm pits and it is yeast, yellow and stinky. they sell all kinds of yeast meds otc. but i wouldnt know if safe for ur birds. foot powder for athletes foot is one. and yes a bath would help as long as they dont get chilled. best thing i have found is (man, i cant spell) aleo vera plant
