Hi All - this is my second year starting baby chicks (coming in next week). I HAD a broody hen and I had hoped she would help, but we had an upset which broke her brood - she was a first timer. Now I'm back to raising them myself! My question is about vaccines. Last year I bought my chicks from Meyer's, and I'm pretty sure they came pre-vaccinated for Marek's disease (spelling?). I'm also pretty sure I gave them medicated feed to start out. This year, I'm buying my chicks from a local feed store which gets them from Mexico, and they aren't vaccinated at all. I need to know which vaccinations they absolutely need. I tend to be a minimalist when it comes to medications - I really just want to vaccinate them from something that is likely to cause death. Is Marek's the only big one? How/where do I get it? What about cocci? Is that where the medicated feed comes in? I've already bought regular feed (unknowingly), but I can save it for when they are older. Thanks in advance for your help!!
