    My local feed store didn't have anymore of those fowl pox needles and I was wondering how exactly do you administer with a syringe?

    Are you talking about the tool to give a fowl pox vaccine? I have never given the vaccine, but here is a video that shows the 2-pronged tool, and another link that gives instructions about giving it with a syringe:

    Thank you! I just went ahead and bought the tool on jeffer's. I was surprised that no one in my area had anything. I get a lot of mosquitos around here and I don't want my flock catching anything nasty.
