1)Fowl pox.(avain DNA pox virus)

2)There are two types of disease .

           *The first is spread by mosquito bites and wounds contamination.there are injuries on the comb,wortles and beak.

           *The second is that spread by inhalation of the virus and causes  a diphtheritic membrane to form in the mouth ,pharynx,larynx.

3)There is not treatment for this.vaccinated birds (avain )can be vaccinated as a preventative.there are vaccinated according  to the age of the birds.vaccinate  birds by 6-10 weeks age.chicks are vaccinated one day after they are old.

                                      To limit the spread of the virus.i can inoculate chickens that are not affected by the virus.
