    Need a consensus! Is it safe to hatch eggs from hens after vaccinating them for Fowl Pox? Will the chicks be affected in any way?

    i don't see any reason why not. At worst there should be more antibodies created as a response to the vaccine in the hens system so the level of immunity in the chicks could be higher if anything - assuming there would be any transmission from hen to egg.

    That's just a theory and not a statement of fact however. Other members may be able to provide a more factual response.

    Good luck
