    Hi all just noticed these things on my chicken, any advice? They look like a fungus.

    Looks like fowl pox to me. The dry version.
    I don't think there is much you can do for it, except wipe it with iodine, and let it run its course.

    Do a search for avian pox (Won't let me link directly)

    Thank you so much imp, I have heaps of mosquitoes here which is probably why. She is the only chicken I have left, I used to have 3 but got home late one night and either a dog or cat or crow got the other 2. I found one dead and the other just found her feathers. Been extra careful since. This one I have left contrary to the symptoms lays monster eggs. I think it may be because I feed her daily with black soldier fly larvae. She isn't completely alone because I also have 2 ducks but definitely need to get her another hen friend.

    Thanks again for the advice, very much appreciated.
