    Hi I'm
    New to chickens and this is our first flock, they range from 21-24 weeks. I noticed two small bumps on the wellsummers wattles a few days ago and when I looked at her this morning it looked like this. Pox? Mites? This is the only location I can see so far. All the other birds look ok, I think? But the barred rock has some black on her combs. It's hard to know what's normal or what is mites etc? The tan on her wattles is dirt, I brushed it off ;) [​IMG]

    Looks like pox... It's viral and will run its course.
