    I use it on my incubators, in between hatches, and before storing away.

    I use Oxine (Chlorine dioxide) as well, based on recommendation by K.J. Theodore from Shagbark Bantams. Used properly, it is an excellent disinfectant that breaks down into a simple salt ~ so I believe it's pretty safe. It may also prevent fungal/respiratory infections. Ms. Theodore's poultry health web articles on this may be found here:

    The article about Oxine is here:

    And another interesting article about respiratory fungal infections and Oxine is here:
