Mareks, Infectious Bronchitis and Coccidiosis questions

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Ok, I'm definitely vaccinating for Mareks...  Is it only a one time vaccine? That the hatchery provides, or will I have to do subsequent vaccines after I get them?

 

I read an article about feeding medicated feed to young chicks to control/prevent Coccidiosis...  is that a good idea?  

 

And I've read a good bit about the IB too..  is there a vaccine for it, like the Mareks?  

 

Are there more diseases that should be vaccinated against?

 

Thanks in advance...

I have read that some hatcheries offer certain vaccines at an additional cost. There are indeed vaccines for IB, among others (some also include Newcastle disease). Many need to be administered with the first 24 hours of hatching, so if your hatchery of choice does not offer them, it may not be worth vaccinating after this period.
