    How long does it take for birds to develop the antibodies after vaccine is given. I looked and couldn't find this answer. I just vaccinated my babies and want to know how long it takes because I don't want to let them outside until their antibodies have kicked in. Im probably being over protective here but I just wanted to be safe. I was hoping someone could answer my question. Thank you so much.

    I am not an expert on Mareks, but I think that it takes 7 days to develop immunity.
