    Hello everyone :) quick question..I need to know how much Oxine to add to my quart size bottle for misting coop and chickies. I know it is a few 7-15 drops for drinking water. Hopefully I will get answer before I go out to clean today. I know there are many post on Oxine..looking for quick respond. I hope this product works well...oh also, what temp is to low to do light misting over chickens..I am in NJ, starting to show winter season here..Thanks, have wonderful day :)

    Hi & [​IMG], Here is a link to a great article on Oxine http://www.shagbarkbantams.com/oxine.htm My hens were out in cold rain/sleet yesterday and didn't seem worried about the cold. A light misting will not hurt them but, I wouldn't do it if, they look fluffed up from cold.
