First Aid Box

Recommended Posts

Well after my experiance of the last few days. I really dont want the same to happen again. So I want to have a supply of medications for my chooks so I dont have to wait for stuff to arrive in the post again.

 

Can anyone give me a list of usefull chicken medications that I could buy. Can you buy Baytrill on the net or do you have to get it from the vet?

I dont think you can. :think:

 

We have a bottle of Respite in our "chicken box" which is good for coughs/colds/sneezes

 

Avipro is good as well as a pick me up for poorly chooks.

 

We also have Vetinerary wound powder (yet to use) and Purple spray for any cuts/open wounds/pecks

 

Shellstim (for harder egg shells/helps with soft shelled eggs)

 

Aloe vera tonic for the water, chicken spice for the food.

I think Baytril is only available through a vet, or with a prescription.

 

I have arnica pillules, chicken spice, purple spray, aloe vera gel and mite powder.

 

Shellstim for eggs

 

Citricidal for sneezes

Respite is good,but a word of warning.

it smells VERY strongly of garlic, & after the hens has emptied the Glug I put it through the dishwasher,& it made it smell of garlic - awful!

 

I had to do 3 cleaning programmes to get rid of the smell :roll:

I have a box with the following:

 

To stop feather pecking:

  • Gentian Violet (for antiseptic and to prevent feather pecking)
    Anti-peck spray

 

General supplements to keep the girls in good condition

  • Garlic powder
    Citricidal
    Davinova C (calcium supplement)
    Vaseline (it gets cold up here and the girls need their combs protecting from frostbite)
    Liquid poultry tonic
    poultry spice

 

Treatment for more unusual conditions

  • Liquid Paraffin (incase they have problems with their crop)
    A syringe with no needle (for applying liquid paraffin directly) or you could use a pipette.
    nail clippers to keep their claws trim

 

You could also get styptic powder which helps stop bleeding

Well we have:

 

Poultry Spice-Helps to get their mineral levels and things up during moult.

Louse powder-Gets rid of lice when they have it.

Citricidal-You add it to their water when they have a cold/sneezes.

Latex gloves-I wear these when I'm louse powdering the chickens so it doesn't get in contact with my skin.

Rescue Remedy-Good for cleaning up wounds when mixed with warm water.

Vaeline-To stop the chickens getting frostbitten combs during winter.

 

Hope that helps,

 

Liz

We have apple cider vinegar, poultry spice, red mite powder, shellstim, and bumper bits. I'd recommend all of these. I have used liquid parafin, vaseline, citricidal, and tar spray, but wouldn't prioritise them.

What's the dilution for citricidal? I'm not very good at working these things out!

 

Thanks.

 

Officially I dont know! unofficially I add about five drops to half a litre of water!

Think ours consists of the antiseptic spray, salt water and Rescue Remedy.

 

Mind you, pulled old Florence back from a fox attack, knew she was getting better the next day when she didn't want the dropper of the RR to go in her beak.
