I had a Fowl Pox question today. Please share this with others looking for HOLISTIC BODY NURTURING ways to deal with this challenge. If I had that in my flock (wet or dry) here is what I would use. Do remember antibiotics will get you nowhere with this problem because it is viral. HerBiotic (tm) herb mix orally (can mix in wet feed- give triple dose first day 2 to 3x that day- so split their feed up over several meals), HerBiotic(tm) salve on the lesions or pox that you find at least 2x a day- this will enable the body to try to make them so that they can't infect your facilities or anything else as they fall off. MMune(tm) herb mix to support their immune systems. Lung Support Extract can be given to support respiratory or help their bodies avoid respiratory issues. We also just changed our Breathe!(tm) Tea into a feedable herb mix - it can also made made into tea but can be fed. It also can be mixed with wet feed. Black Strap molasses (it has to be black strap with is high mineral and low sugar) can be added to make it more palatable as well as giving their bloodstream an additional nutritional boost.
If this is a problem in your area (generally humid summer climate areas and mosquito areas) consider keeping the flock on Better Daze(tm) to boost their nutrient intake. Layers can be on LayNLayer(tm) herb mix.
Many people like to start their chicks, poults, ducklings, keets, etc on GI Soother mixed with a wet mash. It really helps give thier system endurance as well as help the body with coccidial and bacterial challenges.
