    So now that my dumb rooster got his butt kicked, it occurs to me that I should have some stuff on hand. What do you all have in your first aid kits?

    Sevin and Blu Kote (or some anti-pick product.) I use my own Neosporin, peroxide, or Betadine if needed (it's not that hard to prevent cross contamination.) I also have some Valbazen, a wormer.

    I have seen replies to this question that were half a page long, though.

    Our Faverolles injured her toe somehow, and it was bleeding enough to drip. Kind of scary. Fortunately I remembered that we have some Wonder Dust, which is a coagulant used on horses and other livestock. Unfortunately, it's out at the barn with the horse stuff (we board in another location since we live in the city). A quick trip to Southern States, a toe dunk in the Dust, a little time in the broody cage to let the wound clot, and viola! Highly recommend the stuff, especially if you've got fighting roosters.
