I thought it would be good to start a thread on the different types of medicines people use to heal and support their chickens' health. This would be sort of a knowledge base for new chicken owners, much in the same way most adults know what aspirin/ibuprofen are and what they can be used for. I don't want this to turn into a debate over should you or should you not medicate your chicks or adult chickens. This is for, what should one have on hand "just in case" if that is what one chooses to do and when should one use it. Things to include: what the medicine is called, where you can get it, what it is used for, any dangers or problems you've personally experienced with it with your birds. You can add if you can use it for other kinds of poultry, too. Feel free to add any helpful sites you've used in building your knowledge on this topic, too. Thanks in advance for participating! I'm looking forward to learning from the collective wisdom and experience of BYC members.
