I've seen it in small packets, tablets and then in big pails. I am interested in the packets & tablets. Where is the cheapest place to find it?????

Everything, hehe. I have and use Oxine AH, but I herd Virkon might be better.

Looks like it's made by Dupont.  I'm sure you could contact them directly for a list of retailers in your area.  It looks like good stuff.

There's an 800 number if you click "Sales and Support."

It is what they used here during the birdflu outbreak here in Holland

The cheapest I have seen for the ten pound tub was just under 60 dollars (makes 123 gallons >cheaper than the tabs)>this will last a LONG time! (perhaps a nearby BYC member would go in "halvies" with you?)
but here is an online site for the tabs @ 23 dollars (cheapest I found) > makes 50 gallons):

dont buy the sachets > these work out to around an average of 3 dollars a gallon

Randall Burkey Company has it in powder form. Just go to randallburkey.com, then poultry supplies, medications, health aids and finally, scroll down to the bottom of the page.
I have used  Randall Burkey several times, and I am well pleased with them.
