    I was in a terrible position last weekend with a sick chick and no medicine, ended up losing her...
    I don't want to get caught out again. I was wondering what sort of items would be good to have around in an emergency? I want to have a chicken first aid box. Antibiotics is top of my list! What else should I get?

    So sorry to hear about your chick, I have one at home recovering with a broken hip and keeping fingers crossed she recovers but I think thats a great idea for a Chicken first aid Kit list, I would definately put one together as I have only been keeping chicks and ducks for a few months so still learning. Got a lot of useful advice last night and got the items that was suggested so have a start on it.
