vaccine question also; Purchased 4 chicks 3 weeks ago tomorrow, I am assuming they were a few days old or 1 week (we forgot to ask how old they were, but they had feather tips on wings) Now they have a full feathered wing pretty much just a little of soft down left close to the arm pit.
So I called the feed store we purchased them to ask if the chicks had been vaccinated. Answer is NO.
I would like to know what vaccines they need so that I can vaccinate them myself. (never too late right?)
My chick info: 4 Red Star chicks still in the brooder, used 250 lamp swapped to 75/120watt bulb today.
they eat Purina Grow Medicated
I made a mistake and let them play outside 3 times this week, so now I wonder about the whole COCCI issue,
Right now they are making normal droppings.
I would like to Innoculate for Mareks, Newcastle and Bronchitis and Coccidiosis. I know I will have to change the feed to non-medicated. Is it too late? The chicks will be housed in coop (rubber made storage conversion with chicken run attached). I have 2 mini schnauzers so I am thinking of not free ranging them. Please opinions would be helpful ---TIA
