    I'd like to put toether a "first-aid" kit for the hens with products that you recommend! There are so many different types of dewormers, antibiotics, at home remedies...etc, and it's hard to know what to use/works well. Please tell me your favourite products and I will get the tried and true ones that your swear by!

    All you need for a dewormer is DE the white powdery kind almost like flour.

    There is actually this really great stuff call "EMT first aid kit in a tube." or something along those lines. It's used for healing cuts, gashes, all sorts of stuff.

    Had a friend actually who's chicken was brutally attacked so much that it's spine was visible... Really bad. They filled the gash with EMT and two months later it was like it never happened.

    Seriously recommend this.

    DE does not kill worms.Valbazen kills all worms and would be good to have on hand


    Vitamins(Durvet)Rooster Booster)
    Corid
    Vetericyn
    Bandage
    Mite/Lice duster(Garden Spray poultry dust is good)
    Wormer(Valbazen)
    Gloves
    Cotton Swab
    Face mask
    Vasline
    Blu kote
    Syringe

    These are things i have on hand you dont need them all but its good to be prepared.
