    What medications do you keep around for emergencies for your chickens?

    wazine & ivermectin. (not really for emergencies per se, but needed for regular wormings) everything else is either in my human first aid kit or I can run over to the feed store and get what I need. I've never had to use anything besides the wormers

    Don't want to be caught without oral antibiotics and neosporin for eyes or wounds, a new heat bulb too for anyone so injured, caged warmth is needed. I am very hesitant to medicate unnecessarily but the things that need it usually need it pretty quick (or at least when the feed stores are closed). A coccidioatat would be good to have on hand too.

    Cayenne Pepper is for the water to keep egg production up.
