Is avipoxivirus lethal?

I have a chicken that has avipoxivirus, and is it lethal for my chicken?

I think the question would be more easily answered in a forum specifically about chicken care, but maybe someone here knows.

Could you call a veterinarian ? My vet has been pretty good about giving advice over the phone . I hope it’s turns out to be okay for your chicken.

Possibly, yes.

i think it just depends on what kind of infection it has and how healthy the bird was initially. a vet should be able to provide better guidance and may be able to help guide you in vaccinating other birds, if possible, and if you have other birds.

here’s a video that describes the vaccination process for fowl pox: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Njy7R4ngoo.
