There is no telling when a sick or injured chicken is going to need immediate, medical attention, so it is best to prepare for emergencies. Knowing the types of supplies to have on hand is as important as having a safe, quiet space in which they can recover. I use my infirmary space for multiple purposes, including: a broody den for hatching chicks, a time-out space for aggressive or problem chickens, a broody-breaker crate and as a grow-out space for teenagers being integrated into the flock.


I always keep a basic first-aid kit handy and stocked with: Vetericyn, vitamins & electrolytes, epsom salt, non-stick gauze pads, Vetwrap, gloves, Epsom salt, sterile scalpels, tweezers, scissors and Duramycin, antibiotic ointment, Nutri-Drench and povodine-iodine. During an urgent, medical situation, acquiring supplies should not be the priority.

Really helpful post. I am putting together my chicken first aid kit this week. We just got our chicks a little over a week ago. Now i have a better idea of what I need. Maybe I will be the lucky winner and get the supplies I need.

Happy to help, Rebecca! I'm sure your rooster doesn't hate you, he's probably just doing his job, thinking he is protecting his girls. It sounds like they all had a rough start in life, such a shame. I'm happy for them that they are now well fed and in a loving home. Congratulations on your new pets!
