    Hey everyone!

    I'm getting some Marek's vaccine delivered today to administer to our 5-7 day old orpingtons. I've read that as long as they have been inside and kept away from other chickens, it is still okay to vaccinate. I hope this is correct.

    I've read all the instructions/links from other posts and feel like I can probably handle it, but wanted to know if anyone might have any last minute recommendations/advice to a first-timer. We have 10 chicks to vaccinate.

    Thanks in advance!

    Thanks for the link! I'm studying the pics and gathering my courage! I don't think the injection will be the difficult part. I think trying to keep the chickie still while I'm doing it will be the hard part! LOL. [​IMG]
