    Okay, so my chicks were vaccinated for Marek's Disease. I am now feeding them medicated feed... which someone said is incorrect? I thought that "medicated feed" was for coccidiosis... but someone said something about a marek's vaccination in medicated feed? i think they were confused...

    maybe i misheard all of this.. not sure...

    please assuage my fears and confirm that it is okay to have your chicks vaccinated for Marek's AND feed them "medicated feed".

    thanks!

    It's fine. Medicated feed is medicated to manage coccidiosis.
