    Just noticed this spot. Very bottom of her wattle. She is molting, so generally a little slow sluggish now. Is this a side effect of molt? or something else? Thanks for any help

    It's hard to tell exactly what it is. I have seen peck marks or injuries look a little discolored. Pox could be the problem, but it doesn't look that clear. The little mark on her comb tip could be a similar mark. If you have a heavy mosquito population right now, pox can certainly be a possiblity. Pox usually lasts about 3 weeks without complications, while a peck or wound will take a few weeks to heal.

    thanks. I have never had pox. How do you immunize? Please share any tips or advice you might have.
    I did separate her right away. It was easier to take a pic, and I figured it could not hurt if anything was wrong.
