    I'm planning on getting some Oxine for my chickens because we seem to be running into some issues. But I have 4 ducks, does anyone know if this stuff is safe or them???

    It's been highly recommended on other forums by experts, I wouldn't worry about it. [​IMG]

    Just don't use the activator with it if you want to use it in a vaporizer for breathing treatments.

    I was shopping around for oxine and found it really cheap at Brew City Solutions: http://ow.ly/7fvbR

    Shipping is included but you have to buy a case of 4 gallons at $88 to get it really cheap. But the least expensive I saw it by the gallon was at Amazon Marketplace for $25 (& $10 shipping). So that's a savings of $13 per gallon.

    I also heard that a lot of folks just use a regular home humidifier to "fog" the birds inside the barn - that way they can breathe it in and kill the mungus if it's inside their lungs already. I looked at the foggers and they're $400! [​IMG]

    Quote:I am thinking this is probably the same, but when reading about Oxine on the AtoZ pets web site they do call their Oxine ah, so i am confused as to if the oxine you found at Brew City is the same as at AtoZpets? If so then its a great deal.

    I also have a computer that is not cooperating either sorry for double posts. [​IMG]
