    Hi,

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

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

    Thanks!

    There are a LOT of references, thread, articles here on BYC and the web.
    The best place to start is the learning center on BYC and reading the most "popular" blogs about chicken keeping, including but not limited to HenCam, Chicken Chick, Tillys Nest, Fresh Eggs Daily, etc.
    Common sense goes a long way in treating your flock, as well as, comparison research, vet and poultry manuals.

    Here's a couple to get you started.
