Reason:- Because Fowl pox virus is a slow spreading viral disease of various avian species that causes skin lesions (dry pox) or diptheritic lesions (wet pox).
Dry pox results in scabs and lesions around the comb, wattle,ear lobes,and eyes.
wet pox lesions are associated with the oral activity and upper respiratory tract, especially the larynx and trachea.it is very serious, results in higher mortality.

Prevention and control
Basically there is no treatment for this fowl pox disease but we can treat them through the vaccinated and prevention and control are vital for keeping flocks healthy.
Decrease the impact of fowl pox on a flock,
- particles can be found in the environment and debris found in the poultry houses, thus dust contVirusrol and disinfection of the environment are important.
- An effective insect control program should be in place.
- A biosecurity program to prevent the movement of equipment that could be contaminated with pox should be implemented.
- Vaccination is practiced based on history of exposure—revaccination, if necessary, can be done in the face of an outbreak because pox infections are usually slow spreading.
- In the event of an outbreak, liquid iodine disinfectant (used for disinfecting water lines) added to the water appears to aid in reducing mortality.
- Create a stock solution by adding 30 to 45 mL/L (4 to 6 oz/gallon) iodine disinfectant to water.
- Add the stock solution to the water line through a medicator at a concentration of 8 mL/L (1 oz/gallon) drinking water.
- Spray or fog the house with a disinfectant to
- Limit stress and
- Apply antiseptic to scabs.
