    I have permethrin spray concentrate for the chickens specifically, and otherwise standard first aid supplies that serve for everyone here; nothing else specifically for the chickens.
    Medications age out (as my permethrin spray from 2016 seems to have done!) and Wound dressings don't last forever either, so there's one stash for all of us here.

    There’s so many good items listed. One thing I have that is so useful is a hooked tipped syringe. Excellent for anything orally administered. Great for flushing wounds. If you need to put medication in a grape, perfect! My dentist gives them to me when I told what I used them for he handed me a few more. I love my dentist!

    You may have missed the reason for the knife ;)

    A sharp knife could be used for things other than euthanasia, lol.

    Maybe, but am pretty sure that is not what @Mrs. K meant. ;)
