    Since I started reading posts here, I have notice a lot of "emergencies". Impacted crop and cheerios ear e.g. So what should I have on hand to help with emergencies? I didn't do a search so I don't know if this has been addressed before. Sorry if this is a repeat.

    Any good books on the subject?

    It also seems like the list of vets treating poultry are small.

    Thanks, I should have done a search! But, you never know how many new people are looking on here!

    One thing on the link in a post is Preparation H! I'm afraid to ask!?!?
