    I have some 3 day old baby chicks. I asked the feed store if they where vaccinated and he said that the only thing to really vaccinate for was pox. not sure if the starter feed he sold me from a large bag is medicated or not. I was thinking of vaccinating them for avian pox and mareks anyway.
    These are my first chickens ever. so i am a complete newb.
    any advice would be great.

    also where should i get the vaccine at? i just have 4 chicks atm.

    I've kept chickens over 20 years and never worried about that. I just feed them and give them water, I've never had any problem.

    I only feed non-medicated chick feed as that's all I can get here from Tractor Supply and have never had a problem, either.
