    hi
    about 3/4 weeks ago i purchased 4 small 1.6 oz bottles of oxine ah.for $20 from ebay.
    i was very careful about using it and felt that it actually seemed really mild. so i thought it would be good to try it activated in the coop.
    now, when i add the activator 1/8 tsp citric acid to the 1/8 cup oxine, nothing happens, twice now.
    i opened a new dark glass bottle stored in a cool dark place thinking it would be fresh, so to speak.
    nothing. it is not because it was windy that i didnt notice an odor. no yellowish color, no odor-----do you know if odorless is normal?
    has anyone here had experience with what the act. oxine should look/smell like?
    ty
