    I messaged MPC to ask why bantams can't be vacinated for Mareks disease and heres what I found out:



    Hi Sully,

    Bantam chicks are smaller than standard chicks and the vaccination equipment that our hatchery uses is not suitable for Bantams. I believe some hatcheries are able to, but unfortunately we cannot.

    Best Regards,
