Looking for NATURAL Remedies

Create a DIY first-aid kit and use natural methods to keep your flock happy and healthy.
SEVENKE/SHUTTERSTOCK

Having a first-aid kit assembled and tucked somewhere handy in case of emergency is always a great idea, no matter what type of animals you raise, but it’s especially important when you raise chickens. Predator attacks are common, as are respiratory issues and parasite infestations. Avian vets are difficult to find, and a visit can often be cost-prohibitive. Emergencies happen on weekends, holidays and at night when stores and vet offices are closed, but fortunately, most common chicken injuries and illnesses that aren’t lifethreatening can easily be treated at home.

If you raise chickens long enough, the day will come when you need to administer first aid. Whatever it may be — and the list is lengthy: a sprain, broken toenail, puncture wound, insect sting, respiratory infection, cut, frostbite, bumblefoot, mites, worms or an injury caused by another chicken or a predator, just to name a few — you will need to be prepared in advance. This way, you won’t have the added stress of running around trying to find what you need or making a trip to the store while you’re an emotional mess with a hurt chicken on your hands. Even simple things, such as a speck of dirt in an eye or a splinter in a foot, will require basic first-aid treatment, so it’s far better to have everything ready and then hope you never have to use it.
