    I just got my pullets,on the trip home 2 of them sustained wounds ( i hope minor), I need to know what I can apply. Also I have read of a first aid kit for chickens but could not find what it contains.

    [​IMG] aww sorry about your pullets try using" 8oz water mix in 1/4 teaspoon of non iodized sea salt" clean the wounds when needed don't let them get dirty every day till they are all healed up [​IMG] clean and dry is the key!!!!!!

    You can use neosporin - just make sure it isn't one of the creams that contains anything with 'caine' on the end like lignocaine. They are painkillers are are not good for chickens!

    Welcome to BYC. Flush wounds with 50/50 water and betadine mixture, pat dry, then put on the neosporin.
