    if you have a co-op ours out here sells it. if not they will order it but its very costly to have delivered,
    I have been using Permcetrin powder. one can cost 5.95
    and is enough for 200 chickens . it goes far. .
    I sprinkle it into there floor shavings and nests.about
    2 handfulls every 3 months.depends how many you are housing.
