    I just got my Mareks vaccine from the local feedstore and the live virus is in liquid form. I was intending to use a 1/4 of it but i'm not sure its possible if it is liquid? how do I know how much liquid is in the live virus vial?

    Anyone done this before, or did I get the only odd vaccine company around?

    The one I have always seen / used comes in two bottles/vials, a small one with the dried virus and the bigger one with the (pink) diluent, and you combine the two. The big hatcheries use another form but I thought it had to have special handling and was not available from a feed store. Do you have a brand name or manufacturer of it?
