    Pretty little chick, thanks for sharing a picture!

    In case you didn't know...there are state threads where you can find members in your area. Just type your state name in the search box and the TN state thread should pop up.

    Have fun with your little ones

    Medicated chick starter is to prevent coccidiosis,.. That has nothing to do with Mareks. Marek's vaccinations I believe have to be given very shortly after hatch. It doesn't prevent Marek's but, may lessen the symptoms. Marek's is everywhere. Survivors will be carriers for life. There are many very good Mareks threads on BYC, use the search box to find them.
