    Since I have started a small hatchery (not certified yet, but working on it), I am considering what vaccines to use on my stock I am hatching/buying along the way.
    How many of you vaccinate your own birds? Which vaccines do you use?
    Pox?
    AE?
    Mareks?
    Newcastles?
    Others?

    Thanks.

    Look and see what your other hatchery business competition offers it's customers. If you were buying baby chix from a hatchery what vacc options would you want available to you?

    I have not vaccinated my chicks because I am trying to keep them as organic as possible. Now I wish I would have for piece of mind.

    We're anti vax ...no matter what your species is unless there's been exposure to something like Anthrax...then the benefits outweigh the risks.

    So, no vax for our birds.

    I always make sure they are vaccinated for Marek's ASAP. Then, I just give them medicated feed. But now that you mention those other vaccines...
