    found this:

    Welcome to BYC. Fowl pox is transmitted by mosquitos. There arnt any treatments because it is a virus. It has to run its course which takes about 2-4 weeks. They will be immune to it afterwards. Iodine can help dry the nodules and scabs, they are infectious to other chickens. The eggs are safe to eat.

    But google fowl pox and see if the pics are similar to what you are seeing.

    Let me know how it goes!!!!!!

    :)
