    Hi, before I go anywhere and look like an idiot, I'd like to ask this first. If my birds ever end up sick (need antibiotics, etc.) where do I get that?
    Do i really have to go to the vet and have her tell me to bring my chickens in, or is there a place I can get meds for poultry without the huge vet bill?
    thanks!

    Feed store or Tractor Supply usually have the basics...internet for many others.

    Some things you do need to go to the Vet for though...and they usually require seeing the animal.

    You can order just about everything you'd need from Jefferslivestock.com or call them. They ship quick also.

    Foyspigeonsupplies.com also sells many poultry meds. They too are a family run business and excellent to work with.

    Thanks! I just have a few birds i recently got from Louisiana (and i am in St. Louis) and they are a little sniffly/snorty. No discharge or anything, I wasn't sure if it was something I could chalk up to the temperature difference or not. They are on a holistic wormer/vitamin regimen, but I fear at some point I may need to introduce antibiotics. At this point i am just hoping its the weather difference.
    Any thoughts?
