    My first babies hatch on Friday - and I realized I forgot to order some vaccine!

    I was going to order the split pack from First State Vet Supply. I assume this is not premixed. I will have a second hatching in November and need to vaccinate them also. Has anyone ordered from them?

    Also I am just confirming that it is given sub-q.

    I've never ordered from First State Vet Supply, so I can't help you with that.

    But, yes, it is given subcutaneously, in the back of the neck.

    The vet supply should have a customer service number to give you support on this?

    It's late at night and I was hoping if I got a response I would just place an internet order. Plus I wanted to make sure they were a legitimate company. I don't like giving out my credit card number to random websites.
