    Hi Guys,
    I have a question.
    My chicks were vaccinated for marek, when they hatch their eggs will their chicks glean any benefit from that? Should I vaccinate their offspring?
    Thanks
    Rhonda

    They won't inherit any immunity from their parents' vaccination.

    Thanks Momo. I didn't think they would but had to be sure.
