    pox

    Prevention of Pox –
    To prevent Pox from invading ones farm. Start with empting all containers of old excess water
    this would be one of the main source for mosquitoes to strive. For areas which can’t be emptied
    like ponds, slow running creeks and water troughs one can buy what is call mosq donuts can get at local Home Depot or Lowes these are safe for animals.

    Vaccinating can be prevention however remember that one might be introducing a live virus to the flock even if all flock is vaccinated there are always some that doesn’t take and still get pox.
    There are some pox tablets that work very well.


    Once pox has infected a bird there are no cures just has to run its path these suggestion are for containment from spreading. Pox is a virus. To treat Pox one can do several things to keep from spreading the sores.

    There are two types of pox dry pox and wet pox.
    Dry pox is where sore persist on the outside which could be on the head or legs.
    There are several ways to treat pox one may use hydrogen-peroxide to wash the pox sores which one may refer to as dry pox. One may use shoe polish dauber and cover the sores with shoe polish to dry out the sore and keep from spreading.


    Wet pox is on inside the mouth this would be the worst type due to the fact that suffocation can occur due to swelling of the throat from the sores.

    Re: pox

    What do you guys recommend Avian Encephalomyelitis-Fowl Pox-Pigeon Pox Vaccine or just the regular Pox Vaccine?

    When is an actual good time to give them the vaccine at the beginning or end of summer?

    Re: pox

    Good thread. Its good to learn new preventive measures and revisit this subject. I also have used bleach as well as ACV. They look rough afterwards lol but does the job. I hadnt had pox since early 2000s, got a revisit from it last summer though. Lets see how this one goes.
    Best wishes

    Yes Cigar, and thats a damn good point! Before anyone uses ACV if they should, know that its pretty damn potent and effective to the point that the skin looks burned with one application. One i used didnt have the mother. I was dabbing but then I just dunked their head in ACV and a lil water, simple lol.
    Good day

    Citronella, Pennyroyal, oregano, lavender.. willow tree may also yea it’s skeeter season..

    get the net go catch a lot of minnows dump in any ponds nearby,they eat the larvae..

    let those big mosquito eaters damage crops in adult stage but as larvae they also eat mosquito larvae.

    Re: pox

    Try and keep your grass as short as possible and try and keep standing water down around your property. Anything that will hold water will attract mosquitos If I see them swarming the cocks on cords I apply that corona cream to the cocks on cords and stags in pens heads and It’s alot of xtra work but it will help . Living in the south you are gonna have to deal with mosquitos Just part of life down here
