Thank you BrideBeliever,
Yeah I know there are differing opinions on this and I certainly see both sides. I have called the hatchery to see if the birds are already vaccinated in any way. They do not show an option on the site, as I have seen on some, for vaccinating so I am checking into it. If they do not offer it is this something you can do once the chickens arrive? I have no idea how to give the vaccination so I would not want to hurt them either. I did actually wonder about the place already having chickens and if disease could still linger. I certainly do not want to lose my chicks as 27 birds was a little pricey!
