What is Fowl Pox?
The disease is slow spreading. It is recognized by the characteristic pox lesions on the comb, wattles and non-feathered parts of the body and/or in the upper respiratory and digestive tract. The affected chickens show poor weight gain and a drop in egg production.
Fowl pox is spread by biting insects as well as direct transmission. The virus can survive for years in the pox scabs.
If layers are threatened by fowl pox occurring near by and are not adequately protected, vaccinate chickens immediately with Chick-N-Pox. This vaccine can be given to hens in lay, without the risk of causing pox or affecting egg production.
