    hi all,
    am getting my chicks tomorrow and have just now thought about whether the hatchery has vaccinated them? i ordered from Meyer's and can't find the info on their site.

    They charge extra to vaccinate so you have to tell them to vaccinate. I don't know of any hatcheries that we buy from that automatically vaccinate the chicks. The big commercial broiler and egg laying boys vaccinate inthe shell on day 18, but we don't buy from them.
