1st . Fowl pox

2. Sign warty spreading eruptions and scabs on comb and wattles

It caused by virus of the family pox viridae and the genus avipoxvirus

There are tow forms of the disease the first is spread by biting insect and caused lesions on the comb wattle beak


3. Diseases are spread by:

Direct contact (bird-to-bird, infected manure)
Indirect contact (contaminated equipment, people, environment)
Vectors (wild animals, rodents, insects)
In addition, infectious agents need a “home base,” or reservoir of the disease, to persist in an area. This reservoir could be other birds or organic matter providing life support for these agents. Disrupting the methods by which diseases are spread can greatly reduce the threat to your flock.
