    I had posted about a hen of mine being ill a week or so ago. Someone recomended that I mix oxine and put it in her beak. Well it just came in today and I don't know what concentration to use or how to do it exactly. My rooster is kinda snotty sounding too. I have the 2 of them isolated and treating them with agrimycin (she isnt old enough to lay yet). That's another thing, what is the reason you can't use agrimycin in a laying hen?

    Oxine is a disinfectant/sanitizer. I don't think it's intended to be given internally. Do a GOOGLE search before you feed it to your bird.
