Having a few ticket items in my "vet bag" and a "Chicken Hospital" are key items I think everyone should consider investing in. Unlike us human's, chickens often hide sickness until it is too late and it breaks my heart when I lose a favourite.. Anyone want to share some tips or must-haves for emergencies?? I'm sure I forgot a few. In my "Basic Vet Bag" has the following ... Antibiotics No pick Solution Stress Vitamins Lice/mite treatment De-Wormer Coccidiosis treatment Apple Cider Vinegar Steri-Strips, gauze, pads Needle and thread My "Basic Hospital" has the following.. Plastic dog/ cat crate Chick heat lamp plastic Yogurt containers for food and water Bedding Now the most economical way to purchase these item is pick one up at the feed store every time you go to get food. I'd get an old crate from a second hand store or Craigslist and bleach it.
