    Hi everyone,
    I've been reading and reading and learning so much from this site, it's been so helpful. I was wondering about keeping a few must have medications on hand for some typical chicken injuries and ailments. You know how things work, most times you might need something its late at night and the stores are closed! I would love to hear what are your top 3 or so medications/ointments etc... Please share [​IMG] Thanks!

    I've been trying to put a first-aid box together myself. So far what I did find handy is antibiotics, oral and ointment, and plasters. For pain relief baby aspirin.
    If anyone else can add to this, please do!
