Baby Chick or Chicken First Aid Kit suggestions?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Will go into lock down with my first hatch soon! Want to be prepared for anything.

 

Other than sav-a-chick electrolytes/probiotics

antibiotic ointment

betadine(which i just heard of, have no idea where to get)

flat tipped tweezers(in case of assisted hatch)

eye droppers

 

What other things would you experienced hatchers suggest having on hand for hatching/baby chicks?

 

And what things would you keep on hand for more mature chickens? I plan to keep a chicken first aid kit, with general antibiotics as well. I'm 35 mins from any decent store so Id like to be prepared!

 

I'd rather have it and not need it then lose a chick or chicken so suggestions appreciated!

And yes of course I do have heat lamp, spare heat lamp and 2 extra bulbs.  =)

Storage tub housing, newspaper for first few days, aspen for later

Well just in case someone reads this and it helps, I've seen a lot of good remarks about Poultry Nutri-Drench(aka PND) today. Almost bought some yesterday at tractor supply but alas I did not. >.< Now I wish I did but I'll get some tomorrow. New chicks arrived.
