    I have peeps < 1 week I hatched and some 4 week old Chicks I bought last week. Can the 4 week olds be vaccinated for Mareks now? I haven't been able to find any info on this in my books or online.

    Sure can.
    You can also give a booster to older chickens. Newcastles vaccine requires a booster.

    You can vaccinate for Marek's at any age. Go to my personal page if you need help on where to buy the vaccine and how to administer it.
