    Been looking around and cant figure it out. Looks like Avian Pox. My entire turkey population has it, none of my chickens have any sign of it (yet).

    If you can give me any advice I'd appreciate it. Thanks

    The top picture shows some of the spots on the other birds. Is there anything I can do for them?

    Holy crap......that's a bad case of it. I do believe that is what it is, but that poor bird..I've not seen it that bad. You might give that one some antibiotic incase it developes into wet pox. If it stays dry pox then you just have to let it run it's course....then they won't get it again. Strange your chickens don't have it...... I thought my area was bad with Mosquitos....

    WOW!!! Looks like dry pox to me. It will have to run its course and cross your fingers that it does not turn in to wet pox but it looks like it's headed that way. :/
