    I didn't even realize you could vaccinate a chicken.
    We aren't really into vaccines but we have a chicken now with dry pox and have vaccinated the rest of our tiny flock.

    How many people vaccinate a flock and what vaccines and why?

    We are in the city on a regular sized lot (wishing for a farm!!) and we only have 4 hens-- just in case that would change whether you would or would not vaccinate....

    I have not vaccinated, or should say haven't just as of yet. What is dry pox? I worry about diseases.....but I've had my chickens just over a year, I haven't had any problems. I hope some more ppl reply! Good luck.
