    I am getting my pea chicks this weekend should i vaccinate them for fowl pox.

    What about other vaccines ,do they need any?

    I have never vaccinated mine for fowl pox, although I did have a few chickens with it and vaccinated all the chickens. Never developed in the peafowl, only a few turkeys.... (Mosquito heaven around here).

    if you have the vaccine on hand, stab them jokers too. Always better to be safe than sorry if it's a problem in your area.
