Hey Forum, Long time lurker, I've finally been urged to create an account. I have 3 chickens of different breeds and 1 of my chickens has recently appeared to have 2 lumps, almost like a wart, just around her right eye. I have brought up these chickens since they were 1 week old chicks. They are now going on their 9 months with a steady egg laying track record. She's eating and drinking fine, still running around with the other 2 and her eggs are being laid as they normally are. She isn't any colder or warmer than usual as well and her behavior is fine. She also appears to have some small black lumps on her comb with 2 growing on her left waddle. By looking around on the internet at a few different chicken diseases, it appears as though she may have developed fowl pox somehow. We are currently going through winter, so mosquitoes are quite rare for us. My main concern however, is these two lumps around her eye. The ends of the lumps have a small bit of crusting, but she doesn't react in pain if you touch them. Has anyone seen this? Is there any danger to her well-being or to the other chickens? The other chickens don't have any growths or pox at all, so it seems as though these lumps must be quite fresh. Also how to I go about using her eggs? Is it safe to consume chicken eggs if the chicken has a viral infection?
