Cod Liver Oil, or liquid gold as the keepers of old called it. Providone Iodine spray antiseptic, for cuts and grazes. A Permethrine based spray for direct spray onto birds, and something I am never without, Avipro Plus probiotic.

A bottle of something strong, for you, not the chooks. :D

Wellington boots, waterproof coats, hats, umbrellas and maybe a boat!
In life not everyone follows the same road. Especially if their Sat Nav is broken!
