"Where only the best stuff goes in the box!"

22 "Must Have" items for any Poultry Enthusiasts Medicine Cabinet

I've learned over the years that when your poultry becomes ill, you need what you need and you need it YESTERDAY!  So be prepared for the worst and pray for the best!  Most local feed stores won't carry the really good quality items and it can take up to ten days to get them delivered via the internet.  I keep a stocked cabinet at all times.  Not just for myself but for those who lack an emergency plan.
