    If you were going to stock your coop with items to keep on hand at all times, what would they be?
    I was about to order Blu-kote, just to have on hand, and thought... what else might I need?

    So, if you would please, make me a list of the chicken-health or first-aid supply closet....

    <<opening up chicken supply cupboard and peeking inside>> "Hmmm, what's in here..."

    sock cuffs - chicken straight jackets for working on legs and feet [​IMG]
    electrolyte with vitamin powder - I like the powder because I feel it will last longer [​IMG]
    medical tape
    gauze
    neosporin
    cornstarch - good for stopping bleeding [​IMG]
    brooder - good place for an injured chook if it isn't already in use [​IMG]
    Cardboard - works well for making boots for feet; could be used to stabilize broken body parts [​IMG]

    I'm sure I will think of more but off the top of my head that's a good start.
