I’ve read about peck marks but I’m unsure if that’s what this is. Almost all of my hens and my rooster have them.

I would agree that it looks like dry fowl pox. There is no treatment required. Do not disturb the scabs, since that can spread the virus. Some apply betadine or povidone-iodine to scabs to help dry them. Pox virus can slowly spread through the flock over several months. Affected chickens are usually immune thereafter. There is a vaccine available for those that have not broken out in scabs in environments where pox can be very bad. Here is a good article about pox:
