    I am on a mission to compile a list of info and items to have on hand for my chickens. I have a huge amount of items in the barn for horses and goats but not for the chickens. I am curious for what you all consider to be the "must haves" in your med kits. I have a great vet who will allow me to purchase emergency meds to have on hand as I live pretty far out in the willy wags [​IMG] Curious to know what you all have on hand and for what purpose. Thank you in advance!![​IMG]
