    I am about to clean the coops,runs, waters,feeders and equipment I use. I have a hose sprayer or a one gallon sprayer. Can anyone tell me excarly the amount of oxine to mix in either sprayer(prefer the one gallon) to dilute with water. I will not be using the active kind.

    i use 5oz per 32oz of water so 20oz would be it for me but thats overly strong imo the 6-8oz per gallon should do the trick.

    Thank you. I will go with that. How about a 32 oz spray bottle. I am terriable at math and I dont want to risk using to much or not enough. Another question can you spray the runs and coops with the birds out and about for the day? I was going toplan on closing the chicken door spraying it down, letting in dry and by the time to go to bed it is all dry with new bedding. I can spray the run after everyone is gone to bed.
