    I am getting baby chicks in a couple days and was wondering do baby chicks have to get immunization shots like puppy's do?
    Thanks

    Chickens/chicks don't need vaccinations. It is an option though, and one you would have to research to decide if that's what is best for you chickens and situation. If you ordered your chicks from a breeder/hatchery, it is sometimes an option given to you before they ship. It's like a coin with two sides, so just know they don't need them, but it may be something you would want to do. Good luck with your new chicks.
