I am not new to chickens but I am new to breeding them. I've been trying to figure out whether or not to vaccinate for Marek's and I can't find consistent info on it. Do most breeders vaccinate?

haven't had much experience with it, but it's a very good idea to vaccinate against Marek's as there's no cure and it's fatal. It's also genetic - I think you can get carriers, so if one of your chickens is a carrier and you breed it you could get a chick with Marek's.
You should probably wait for someone with more experience to answer your post though xD
