    Hi All. It seems to me that I should have a set of supplies on hand for my future flock, just as I have a set of human meds and supplies in my medicine cabinet, to use when they're needed. Which supplies and meds do you keep so that you can treat problems in your flock?

    I have DE, Adams Flea and tick spray, A broad spectrum abtibiotic, Eletrolytes, Hot pick, ACV (apple cider vinegar), Poulty dust, and Blukote topical spray. I also have a few needle and syringes for any injections that I may need to give, eyedroppers, and a couple of small cages to seperate the sick or injured.
