    I want to be prepared if one of my chickens get hurt. I live pretty far out from the feed stores.

    There is so much experience on this board, maybe we can put together your favorites for a first aid kit for chickens.

    I have:

    Spray Blukote
    DE (mites)
    electrolytes (but it is for gallons.... do they make some better, smaller?

    what antibiotic, pain reliever, etc.

    Let's make a list..... If you have already done this, please forgive and point me to the right post.

    Great idea. I need all the info I can get. Where do you get spray Blukote? I never heard of this.

    I went to the feed supply to get the chick feed and looked at the medicines.. I think it was in the horse section. I already used it on a cut foot and it healed beautifully. Had I not had it on hand, it may have taken a day or two and the foot could have gotten worse, who knows? But, that is why I want to be prepared.

    Olive oil to warm and a pet carrier to keep them inside the house when they have a retained egg.
