The betadine on scabs is optional, not required, and eyes should be avoided. Viruses do not need antibiotics, only time to resolve. Using the saline and eye ointment are what is best for an eye that is involved. Plain Neosporin ointment is okay if the Terramycin is not available.

Update on our girl Pouf. Neosporin on leg poxes and saline on the eye. She can open her eye again! No collar—we can’t figure out how to make one that allows her to eat. She’s eating more now which is good. We catch her scratching still unfortunately.

You can put plain Neosporin into the eye if you can’t get Terramycin eye ointment. Wash hands first. The leg scabs do not require ointment or treatment. I don’t recommend a collar on chickens with fowl pox.

Thanks! We’ve got Neosporin so we’ll do that for her eye after the saline. Poor baby does rub it on her back. It I can’t help thinking that theees improvement since she’s got it open now. Much less pus than yesterday.

As if this morning, she’s so so much better! Given the difference between the one on her nose and the one that used to be at her eye, saline solution might be good on all the poxes.

ignore the yellow on the pic in her nose. She’s been spoiled eating mashed hard boiled eggs and kefir.
