What do you all think about it?

It does work, but it doesn't do anything that plain old laundry bleach properly diluted can't do.

Actually, it can. Unactivated Oxine can be misted so that birds with respiratory infections breathe it, and it'll cure them. It's also safe enough, when used w/out the activator, to be put in their water in a much stronger solution than you can put bleach at.

Oxine kicked out fungal lung infections last summer in my Delaware rooster and a few older hens. The summer here was unusually hot and humid for a protracted period and we wet down the pens constantly-big mistake. Putting Oxine in a cool mist vaporizer and making the affected birds breathe that for 10 minute periods several times a day for a couple of days knocked out the infection. You cannot do that with household bleach.

 

You can put Oxine in their water for them to drink, you can mist the walls of the coop so that it evaporates into the air space around the roost for them to breathe in, etc. It kills more than chlorine bleach will and is safer to use around the birds.

Hi Speckledhen,

Can you share the dosage of oxine in the vaporizer?  and was it one that i could get at walmart etc? this sounds muck more affordable than the $395.00 mister which i cannot afford.  thank you if you or someone can respond.

 

Peace to all,

Some of my chickens are getting a respiratory issue.  Is everyone on here happy with what oxine has done.  I have a place where I can buy it in Canada.

Wow, that sounds pretty nifty to hear now that I know this product is safe (unactivated) to put in my chickens water for them to drink. All I need is the fogger thingy/ humidifier/ or mist thing and that OXINE product to get started. smile.png

I wish I would have this information 2 years ago though... Would have saved my 10 year old rooster and my 6 year old chicken... hit.gif

Right now I need to fog this on my 5 year old Rhode Island rooster and my 7 month old chickens.

By any chance does anyone know where there is a good but cheap fogger/humidifier to use on my chickens?
