    I'm new with chickens and have only had them for about 6 mo. So I'm trying to learn all I can.
    Could someone tell me the names of the different medicines for chickens, and what they do or will cure,
    and the symptoms so I know what to look for.
    I found one of my red stars dead this morning, after doing all I knew to do. So I really could use some help.
    Thanks

    Google and BYC search will be your best friend in this situation. Learn how to use them now rather than waiting for an emergency. A lot of drugs used for chickens are used off label, so you may not find exact info available.

    Here's some info:
