    Where do I get it? Is it an injectable? Oral? [​IMG]

    To be honest, why do you want it? MM is one of the few hatcheries that offers it. I've never used any in 20+ years.

    I think its a shot. Never had it done to any of my chicks or chickens. Goodluck, -Jay

    Um, because I don't want the chicks I hatch to get it, and my customers are starting to ask.???

    MM doesn't sell it - but I'll check again....

    You can buy the vaccine through Jeffers. It is injectible, given under the skin or (subcutaneous).
