    [​IMG][​IMG]:( I hatched some hens in April and have never vacinated them.
    Should I do it now? It is cold up here in Idaho if that makes a difference. What should I vacinate for? They are very healthy.

    It's up to you if you want to vaccinate them or not.
    I personally don't vaccinate my chicken I want hem as natural as possible and if one would get sick I will end his life.
    My flock is pretty healthy and I didn't have to do it , Thank God. We do eat our own chickens so it's important that the birds don't have medication in their body.

    You don't have to vaccinate for anything if you don't want, and the common cocci and mericks ones are for young chicks.

    I don't vaccinate my birds.
