From Googling, I can see that it has been favorably cited on BYC in the past, and I am so grateful that you have brought it to the attention of subscribers to the Colorado thread, especially me.
I read that one of its uses may be to reduce the slime layer in water containers; this benefit alone would be worth its purchase as I use large waterers that get VERY slimey by the time they are emptied. (And of course these are rather too big to empty BEFORE they are consumed.). I hope I don't have to use it for any of the pathological conditions it treats, but there are so many other alffirmed health promoting benefits to using it, I would consider myself foolish for not trying it.
You're very welcome csilkies:) I have been pouring over the info for days on end. Mold is an issue that terrifies me and I used to think "oh it's just a little mold............" Ha! When it almost kills you and then you battle to rid that and candida from your body, you don't forget these things. It does sound like a welcomed help in pre and during. Still am planning on misting the babies. The thought of having free range chickens with antibiotics is not something I want to get into. Even if they turn into "dinner" later, I'm sure they wont have as much garbage as the stores do............but I want totally free everything in them.
One article said it may be best not to use ACV with it due to possibly activating it. Looking that one over with a fine tooth comb also. My coops are so clean as it is............just gets to me. There was a short period they weren't cleaned properly and wow talk about paying a high price.......hoping I get my shipment in early:)
I think I'm going to have to cull my Americauna roo:( He's not responding to the tylan..........will keep him apart still and try something else if there's no response by day 5.
The Oxine will also be used in my house. When I look at what I payed for a little bottle of anti mold fogging solution it ticks me off. This can be used easily in the fogger and even in my air ducts. Something to think about:)
I did look up the BC and it would take as long to get it here also. Has good uses!!
