    If I buy regular cornish cross chicks, for later butchering, from my local feed store, they have already been vaccinated. After 6-8 weeks of grow time are they safe to eat?? Or should I order from a hatchery and have them NOT vaccinated???

    I've never heard of meaties being vaccinated due to their short life span...If you got this info from one of the store clerks...I wouldn't trust it....I'd order from a hatchery anyway...that's just me
