    I've just noticed 2 of my hens have yellow mold looking spots on their combs and my rooster has feather loss around his neck. The last few weeks our eggs have decreased and I haven't thought anything of it until I noticed the spots. It's sounds like fowl pox but all the pictures I've googled are black, does anyone have any ideas as to what it could be?

    Where do you live? Do you have mosquitoes out presently? Can you post a picture?

    Are they presently molting? I can't tell if it is fowl pox from the pictures, but it is possible. Pecking is also a possibility. If they are not molting, I would suspect pecking out of the feathers by others.
