    I love Denagard. It's online..a bit expensive to start with, but it will last for years...if you have a small flock. I treat mine a couple of times a year as a prevenative of upper respiratory. Works great! Haven't had that illness in years.
    Injuries that happen often, is bumble foot. You can look that up to see how it is done, and what you need.

    There is a link at the top for the Denagard. :)
