    I have just rec. 50 new babies from MM Hatchery and I was told if the chicks rec. Shots for Marecks then you should feed non medicated food and I would like to know if this is true. Hopefully someone will be able to help me with this! Thanks in advance.......[​IMG]

    Mareks has nothing to do with medicated feed. Feed is medicated against coccidiosis, not mareks. If you had them vaccinated for cocci, then you would feed non-med feed.
