1.Fowl pox

2.Fowl pox is caused by an avin DNA pox virus.There     are five or six closely related viruses that primarily       affect different species of birds but there is some       cross- infection .Infection occurs through skin         abrasions or bites,through the respiratory route and      possibly through ingestion of infective scabs..

3.There is no treatment for fowl pox and privention is through  vaccination of replacement birds. Where preventative vaccination is used, all replacement chickens are vaccinated when the birds are six to ten weeks of age and one application of fowl pox vaccine results in permanent immunity.Then  I can  tell vaccines can prevent the disease .
