    Would it be ok to have 2 separate brooders in the same room...one with vaccinated chicks from mm and another with non-vaccinated home hatched chicks? Or should they be raised in different rooms?

    I have no answer but will have the same situation soon. They'll have to be in different brooders because of age differences but can they be in the same room?

    If you have vaccinated chicks. You need to vaccinate ALL from here on out. Those vaccinated chicks will shed the virus and make your other chicks sick.
