    Hi

    Our chicken developed a swollen closed eye a couple of days ago. No sign of infection but we washed it out in case there was something in in. This morning she has blisters on her wattle. It's all on one side - is this pox? She's out and about scratching around but a bit quieter than normal.

    Hopefully a picture is attached to this.

    Cheers all for any help/advice

    J

    Sorry no pic. Can't work out how to upload it. 2 round blisters on wattle between 2 and 4mm diameter. Silvery colour. Eye closed,no discharge or wounds.

    Click the photo icon and upload the photo - I think if you are on a phone it may be different?
    I've only used laptop, so usually you upload or use the url.

    Hope that helps.
