    I am going to make a chicken first aid kit and I need to know what to put in it. I have had a few injuries in my flock this year an haven't had all of the things that I needed on hand. What do you all have in your kits???

    Do a search for this- I know there is an article already posted and updated with reader suggestions. It was really good.

    I don't have a kit. My chickens don't suffer from the same ailments twice. One time one of my chickens choked and I had to swing her to dislodge it. No tools needed there. I would keep antibiotics for egg yolk peritonitis but they expire so I don't purchase one unless I think it could help. Cat toe nail clipper for bent beak that won't break on their own and preventing your chicken from eating (don't cut too close to quick, they will bleed). Children's vitamin drops. Human first aid kit for other random ailments that I hope I don't don't have to encounter.
