My flock has recently had dry pox. I lost one younger hen. One of my turkeys seems unaffected, but the other has huge nodules on his face that continue to grow. I'm assuming it's pox, but I feel so sorry for this baby :( vet is not an option right now.

He isn't exactly a chick Lol but I think he is just miserable and misses his sister. I whistle back to him a couple times and he calms down. He also likes his neck and chest rubbed. He is definitely my baby. That's why I'm so worried about him.

If it's pox, why is he still getting worse? It breaks my heart, but is it kinder to cull at this point? I can tell he is in a lot of pain.

Any suggestions on getting food and water down him? It's a daily struggle. He eats and drinks a little on his own. His eyes began bubbling up and his breathing to rattle so I started him on corid and that is looking better.

Have you checked inside the mouth for sores? If there are sores inside the mouth, it would be wet pox instead of dry pox.
