    Is there a quick way to stop avian pox from getting worse because two of my chicks is suffering, especially my silkie baby. It hasn't grown at all, it is still about the same size as it was 5 weeks ago when I first got it in the mail. For some reason, it developed a large black tumor that spread to the eyes where the chick started to develop pus around its eyes and it suddenly got scissor beak. Anyone can help me out? I never had this problem at all.
