    I have a pair of pullets that i am interested in showing at the fair this fall, but i have some questions about vaccines. Do most poultry shows require that certain vaccines have been given to the poultry in question? I've read that some vaccines need to be administered when they're chicks. Does that mean that they can't be administered when the chickens are adults? Any advice is appreciated.

    naw, vaccines are not required [​IMG] Helpful, but not required. However, you do need to do a bit of blood testing before showing...
