    Hey everyone! Not sure if this is in the right tread but here goes!

    I currently have 6 eggs in the incubator. This is my first hatch, all the others I have gotten shipped from Meyer Hatchery. All of my hens right now (eight) are vaccinated for Mareks. Do you guys vaccinate? I'm not sure if I need to vaccinate these 6 chicks when they hatch or not. The only vaccine that I've seen for sale is on Jeffers for $20 and has 1000 doses...I don't need all that!

    Is it really important to vaccinate and if so, where can I get it?

    Have an eggcellent day!
