    Does anyone on here know where small amts of virkon S can be purchased. I do not need a 10 lb tub at 62+ dollars of it. Thanks Gloria Jean

    Guess what? Long after you posted this I am also looking for a tiny amount.

    I have one chick which has been "gaping" since about it's 5th day. It is now on it's 3rd+ week - eats, drinks, etc more or less fine. But has started a chirping wheeze at times as well.

    Studying info online makes me believe - as it has no other outward signs and has never been on the ground - that this is a fungus.

    Virkon s seems like the answer - but as you noticed is very expensive - especially when at the moment I probably need 4 tablespoons.

    If anyone can help now - or in the future - please let me know.

    Our local co-op stocks Nolvasan S. You might have better luck getting it in smaller amounts.
