OK you want to show the meat birds? Find out where the feed store got the chicks ..then call the hatchery to see if they vaccinate meat birds. I'm sorry I could be totally worng but I seriously don't think the hatcheries vaccinate for feedstore chicks-especially meaties...

I don't have meat birds I have ee's. we are going to show them as egg layers.

My feed store has all chicks vaccinated for Marek's. Call the store and find out. However, as far as I am aware from extensive research, the Marek's vaccine will not hurt them if you revaccinate. However, it is usually only given to day old chicks due to the prevalance of Marek's in the air and soil. My feeling? It can't hurt

Oh I'm sorry. Was answering a few posts about meat birds and must have been thinking of them when I was posting here. I would still find out who your feed store bought them from and ask the hatchery
