That's the funny thing about seeing things in only black and white...the contrasts are so apparent. -mightymax-
The vaccine virus is modified life, meaning the immune system will get a massive wave of it and react with no risk of the that modified virus overcoming the bird
Exactly which vaccine are you referring to as being "modified life", because even if you meant modified 'live' instead of 'life', is still wouldn't exist. There are several
vaccines currently available for use on chickens, and I don't recall a modified one ever being mentioned. Recombinant, bivalent, attenuated...yes. Modified...no.
Also, there's no such thing as a 'no risk' vaccine. They are, by their own definition, inherently dangerous. If you've ever had the experience of being with a
person who was highly allergic to bee stings, get stung and not have their EpiPen handy, you'd understand what I'm talking about. Yes, vaccines can stop the spread of deadly diseases. But remember, they are their own worst enemy, for they are the deadly disease. So if that cute little baby chicken you're vaccinating just happens to
have a nasty reaction to it and dies...I would not consider that to be a 'no risk' scenario.
Vaccines create an army of the right soldiers so when that same (or similar) offending germ comes along again they can kill it with overwhelming force before it takes over.
Not always. While I'll concede that knowing your opponents plan of attack can be the ultimate coup de grace, there are oftentimes more imposing factors to consider when doing battle with an adversary that you've already conquered. They will have adapted new ways to circumvent your onslaught of attacks. Surprisingly little is learned by the warriors that win. It's usually the losers that gain the most knowledge and when they suit up to do battle again, you can be certain of one thing...they will not fail the same way twice.
Well it is pretty apparent that many wayward strange germs DO manage to infect and the immune system frequently doesn't have the right soldiers to fend it off
While that indeed may be pretty apparent to everyone here, I find it really apparent that the dialect of your army is doublespeak.
Exposing unvaccinated chicks to the actual marek's virus means their immune system isn't prepared, and by the time it starts to get antibodies/soldiers to fight off the invader it is too late
The immune system's ability to fight off infection isn't like learning to ride a bike...there are no training wheels to assist your navigation. Nor does it work like a new pair of shoes...it doesn't have a break in period where it slowly and gently adapts to the ever changing surface of your feet. To the contrary, the immune system arrives on the scene ready to fight and with an arsenal of weapons to die for, it doesn't have to warm up like an old, decrepit car.
