Can't wait to see how they feather out, congrats! I hope my old *** hen starts to lay again soon.
Never had pox here at all. Don't want to either. No meds here of any kind. Just vitamins in the water from time to time.
I do my best to keep everything as clean as can be. I use a lot of DE. I clean out water cups often with bleach and use Apple cider vinegar sometimes too. Plenty of fresh straw.
Well I use blu kote and neosporin too.
Miskitos are the carriers so one infection anywhere near enough to you and they will give it to your birds.
