    Would the feedstore carry them?

    It depends on what you are wanting to vaccinate them for. Different vaccinations are sometimes required at different ages. I've also never found any feed store here that carries poultry vaccinations. I've had to order mine.

    May I also inquire as to why you want to vaccinate them?

    I was just curious about it. I got my chickies vaccinated for Mareks and something else, and we're going to integrate a new rooster in a few weeks. I'd have to check my order to see what we got.

    You could not vaccinate for Marek's at that point. Only day old chicks can be vaccinated for Marek's.
