Oxine AH -- eggs safe to eat?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Does anybody know:
If you use (unactivated) Oxine AH to disinfect the coop and keep fungus at bay, are the chickens' eggs still safe to eat?

We have a hen that had to go to the vet tonight for an upper respiratory fungal infection. This has me thinking of disinfecting periodically with Oxine -- since we live in FL, with lots of heat and humidity, that's probably a good idea anyway -- but I am not sure whether we would have to toss eggs when we do that, and if so for how long... Anybody know? I haven't been able to find an answer on that. :/

1 Siberian cat (Rurik), 2 hamsters (Teddy and Alvin), 2 parakeets (Samson and Delilah), and 5 chickens: Black Australorp named Pepper, Buff Orpington named Stella, Barred Rock named Henrietta, a Golden-Laced Wyandotte named Lynda Carter the Wonder Chicken, and an Easter Egger named Princess Victoria (who we got in trade for our Delaware, Lenny Roo),... the zoo groweth!

Yes, oxine biodegrades down to ordinary salt. No harmful residues.
