1. Fowl pox
2.Fowl pox is a common disease in backyard chicken that have not been vaccinated .most birds survive the infection ,althiugh very young or weak birds may be lost.
3.Vaccines are available for fowlpox (ATCvet code: QI01AD12 (WHO)). Chicken are usually vaccinated with pigeonpox virus. This vaccine is usually given to chickens when between the age of 8-14 weeks of age, via the wing web method of injection. When a bird is given the vaccine they are exposed to a mild version of the active virus, so they should be completely healthy to prevent severe illness.Turkeys are also routinely vaccinated.Once a bird is infected there are no treatments, just preventive measures including the vaccine and mosquito management.
