    My RIR rooster has what looks like a whitish, powdery fungus on his wattle.
    has anyone seen anything like this before, and what should i do?
    He is 11 months old, and very sweeet.

    it might be Favus which is a chronic skin condition. I have heard people use athletes foot cream to cure not sure if it works though.
    Hope he get better.
