    Hi,

    Would anybody have a list of the "most" commonly used chicken medications, vitamins, supplements including natural and organic? Also lwhat they are used for?

    I know there are hundreds out there, and hundreds of lists on the internet too! But I'm just looking for the most common or maybe your top 5 to always have on hand.

    Thanks!

    Welcome to BYC!

    Most of my must haves are banned for use in poultry, so I won't list those, but here are two that are commonly used in poultry:

    • Safeguard (fenbendazole) dewormer.
    • Corid, Amprol or AmproMed - amprolium for coccidiosis
