    hi,

    just wondering if anyone could help me identify this skin condition? it is occurring on most of my 40 birds. This is a turken and some of the red rangers have it as well. are they pecking eachother? there are wild chickens in the area and lots of mosquitoes.

    thanks

    Does anyone know if you vaccinate birds that already have fowl pox? Or do you just let it run it's course and hope for the best?
