What is in your chicken emergency kit?

Do you have a chicken first aid kit? Chances are if you've had chickens more then a few months you've accumulated a few things to help take care of them. I've ended up with a whole cupboard full of medical supplies that I use regularly. Many things I bought when I needed them but some I purchased just so I would have them when the time arrives. After all...who wants to be running all the way to the feed store in an emergency?  

What is in your chicken emergency kit?


Most of the things in my kit can be purchased at a feed store, drugstore or even Walmart. A few things need ordered online from animal supply websites. I like Revival Animal Health for medical supplies but many sites carry them. Here is a list of everything in my emergency kit:

d'Uccle's: A true bantam breed

I'm not one of those people that knows about all chicken breeds. I just never bothered to learn. Then again, there are literally hundreds of different breeds so learning about them all would probably be an impossible task anyway! I have done a great deal of research about the breeds I raise though. I'm going to be doing mini-profiles on the different breeds I have raised, 1 per month till I get through the whole list. It should take about a year! First up is the Mille Fleur d'Uccle.

I started raising d'Uccles about 5 years ago and it was quite by accident. I had bought a few mixed bantam chicks at the feed store and one ended up being a Mille Fleur d'Uccle. That little guy was super personable insisting on being picked up all the time. As he got older he enjoyed riding on my shoulder as I did chores. I'm not sure if he though he was a parrot or maybe he thought I was a pirate, but that rooster single handedly made me fall in love with the breed! I've had d'Uccles ever since often seeking out some of the most well known breeders in the country for chicks to improve my lines.
