virus is a member of the genus Avipoxvirus of family Poxviridae and subfamily chordopoxviridae.
By now my fame was spreading faster than an epidemic of fowl pox
Failure of a recombinant fowl poxvirus vaccine containing an avian influenza hemagglutinin gene to provide consistent protection against influenza in chickens preimmunized with a fowl pox
of Athens, Georgia, is using fowl pox
as a vector for avian influenza virus, yielding one vaccine that lends protection for both of those diseases.
These human illnesses occurred after a suspected fowl pox
outbreak among farm A turkeys in September.
Your chickens may be suffering from Fowl pox
, a viral disease of poultry.
