2) Fowlpox is the worldwide disease of poultry caused by viruses of the family poxviridae and the genus avipoxvirus.there are two forms of the disease.The first is caused by mosquito bites.The second form of the virus is spread by inhalation.
3) There is no treatment for fowl pox and prevention is through vaccination of the replacement birds.Where preventative vaccination is used all replacement chickens are vaccinated when the birds are 6 to 10 weeks of age and one application of fowl pox vaccine results in permanent immunity. Proper injection can prevent this to some extent.
