    Can someone tell me how to vaccinate baby chickens and pullets. Is it a shot or what. How do I know what to vaccinate for?

    It is done on the first day of hatch. Hatcheries use a vaccination gun. Medicated starter feed has vaccine. You'll have to check the bags for ingredients. I don't know because I don't use medicated feeds.
