I came across this on another chicken site (hope I'm not infringing on any copyright laws!) and thought it might be good to post here: * Alcohol * Apple Cider Vinegar * Auromycin/terramycin-tetracycline type antibiotics-follow label directions. Use if the whole flock might have the sniffles. * Baby shampoo- for chicks, when they get wet on the bottom and get that sticky chick start gunk underneath. Just be sure to hold their little heads above the water. * Bag Balm - for leg mites, also use on comb and wattles to aid in frostbite prevention. * Ball Pickling Lime-for wounds. It dries it up and deters infection and flies. * Betadine Solution-for cuts and scrapes * Bleach-use for cleaning every thing, including visitors * Blood Stop Powder (Quick Stop),Sugar, (it also helps in fighting infection.),Styptic Powder or flour to stop blood flow. * Boots, coveralls, or coats that you do NOT wear anywhere but to the coop. Sanitize the boots with Lysol (or other disinfectant virucide) once a week. * Camphophenique- topical antiseptic * Cat Food-Dry, 30-40% Protein, used to increase protein to ward off feather eating & cannibalism. Usually protein problem, use only a couple of times a week when necessary. Dry cat food can also be used during molt to up protein levels to aid in new feather production. * Cat Claw nail clippers for trimming toe nails * Cayenne pepper-natural wormer-also used as feed top dress when birds are sneezing or turkeys present with sulphur yellow poop indicating blackhead or similar bug. * Colloidal Silver-added to water to help fight off infections. * Corona (small yellow and black can) for any cuts, bruises, or other injuries. * Cotton balls, Cotton swabs and/or Q-Tips * Diabetic syringes-used for giving injections.

Squirt it on feed. Can also use tuna as a healthy treat. * Fishzole - for blackhead (turkeys & pea fowl) * Gallamycin injectable- A 1/2cc dose will cure a sick bird over night, cool stuff! * Garlic-feed additive * Gun powder/for attitude, camp ax/for too much attitude * Hydrolyzed garden lime in powder form for treating runs & surrounding areas if blackhead is prevalent in your area. This changes the PH & helps remove risk of blackhead. * Iodine stuff w/tea tree oil in it. Good stuff for wounds * Ivomec Eprinex Cattle Pour-On-1/4 cc for bantam and 1/2 cc for large sized fowl. Use a syringe with needle removed and administer directly to the chickens skin (not feathers) at the back of the neck, right behind the head. *Levamisole- (tetramisole) treats Capillary worms, Gape worms, Wide variety of nematodes-10 ml per gallon of water-1 day only. Affects the nervous system of the parasite, paralyzing the worm. * Molasses - flush for botulism * Neosporin-cuts * Oxine for treating birds & coops in event of any nasty outbreak. Also use it to clean the brooders & incubator. * Oyster shell-crushed, available free choice for added calcium * Pam cooking spray or some other spray on oil, olive oil for leg mites and scale problems *Panacur - general wormer-follow label directions * Pedialyte-used to restore electrolytes and hydration to dehydrated chickens * Penicillin - injectable * Pipe stem cleaners - for making shoes for chicks with curled toes caused by incubation problem & for treating splay leg. * Razorblades * Red Cell-small bottle (*Red Cell should be available at any feed store that sells stuff for horses and cows. Red Cell is a blood fortifier and should be used very sparingly as too much is bad, but for an injured animal it really gives a boost.) . * Rifle with a long distance scope for sneaky dogs and raccoons! * SAND play sand, very important for them to dust and help keep down the buggies! Chickens need to dust bathe to get rid of stickies on their feathers. * Sevin Dust 5% - over Bag Balm when treating for leg mites. 5% Sevin is also 'lightly' added to sand for dusting & after coops & nestboxes are cleaned before new shavings. Sevin dust is an effective parasite control. * Sewing needle & cotton quilting thread, for administering stitches *Sulmet - coccidiostat to treat coccidiosis-use exactly according to label directions. (various brands:Albon, Corid, Corid Amprovine, Di-Methox, Sulfaquinoxoline, Sulmet Oblet, Bovatec Premix, & Deccox) Only treat for Cocci if fecal exam warrants. Coccidostats are very hard on the chickens system. * Surgical gloves - makes cleanup easy * Sweet PDZ - this helps in runs & under raised cages. Neutralizes ammonia smell fast. It's bio-degradable & non caustic unlike lime. * Terramycin eye ointment * Tweezers * Tylan - powder form very effective * Tylan 50-injectable- reserved for pets only when all else has failed & culling the next step * Vaccinate for Coryza and ILT if you exhibit your birds at shows * Vet Rx-for colds, sniffles, congestions, general respiratory aid * Vetwrap * Virucidal cleaner-Use for cleaning every thing, including visitors *Vitamins & Electrolytes powder (or Gatorade) * Vitamin K tablets- tablets are given 1/2 hour before dubbing to minimize blood loss, and K and Colloidal Silver (a great antibiotic for people and animals, both internal and external) is available at health food stores or vitamin shops. * Wazine 17 (piperazine) - wormer for Round worms-follow label directions * WD 40-spray the coop with it for buggies. * Wonder Dust Antibiotic dust-the first thing I grab for injuries, usually nothing else needed once I use this and I've treated some very nasty injuries.
