    I have Oxine and have only sprayed it from a spray bottle. I'm not sure how all to use it. So I should get a fogger and fog the coop and run? And I know this is crazy, but can it be used outside on brick or cement? I forgot I had it till I read this thread and the timing is perfect since I'm now treating 2 hens with bacterial infections. Guess I should've been using the Oxine regularly. And what's the mix ratio of Oxine to water? I've used 6 oz per gallon. Does that sound right?

    If I could bring this to you I would but look up www.shagbarkbantams.com/oxine.htm it's a great thread and thats how I learned about it. Waiting for it to come any day now. What really great about it is you can actually spray your birds with it. Hope this helps.
