    So on Saturday I noticed this strange bump on my Polishs beak close to her nose. I made sure it didn't block it, nothing seemed that bit out of whack she acted fine was alert and eating well. So today I got out there and it's gotten extremely worse and I don't know what to do! It's all bloody and now her waddles are starting to get bumps. She's still alert and fine eating and waddling around but I want to stop this before it gets worse!

    Has she been sneezing, head shaking, gurgling or wheezing?
    Are there any necrotic/dark in color or yellow in color lesions in her mouth? Are there necrotic/dark lesions in/on her nostrils?
    Have you closely inspected her head/face area for mites?
    Are there wart-like nodules on her wattles?
    The pics dont tell the whole story, please try to answer all the questions for everyone to read and respond.

    I have checked for mites, I use a lice and mite powder. I haven't checked her mouth but she doesn't seem to be wheezing or struggling to breath. There are no other bumps on her face.

    Did you ever figure out what was going on with your other chicken? https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/846541/raspy-hen#post_12592172 It's possible that they may have the same thing. Are you in a warm climate with mosquitoes right now, where we fowl pox could be a problem? Are her eyes swollen or have drainage. Have you seen fowl pox on any chickens? Here is what fowl pox looks like, but wet pox can be much worse, and block the airway with yellow patches and lesions: https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/avian-pox-how-to-treat-your-chickens-for-avian-pox

    Yes, she is fine now and is laying. I don't think they had the same thing because her symptoms only lasted not even a week. We don't have many mosquitoes aren't a major problem. Her one eye is almost always closed and very wet. With sometimes bubbles.
