    i have had chickens for five years but i still don't know if i should have any medicine handy for them. the only thing i have is a soluble powder and that was when they had the flu. any must-have medicines out there that i should get?

    I made this thread a month ago or so.
    It has a list (several actually) of all the medicines and such to keep.
    I've had many random sicknesses and emergencies with my flock this year and this is my first year to have chickens! It's good to be prepared and learned of symptoms of common and uncommen ilnesses.

    The only meds in my cabinet are for cocci, worms, and mites. If anything other than those are needed, they get culled.
