I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Medicated chick starter is to prevent coccidiosis,.. That has nothing to do with Mareks.   Marek's vaccinations I believe have to be given very shortly after hatch.  It doesn't prevent Marek's but, may lessen the symptoms.   Marek's is everywhere.  Survivors will be carriers for life.   There are many very good Mareks threads on BYC, use the search box to find them.
