    Hi and welcome to BYC - thanks for joining us and congratulations on your new flock.

    Vaccination is a personal choice, but many members do not. It depends on where you are located.

    Here's a link to a search that i have just done - https://www.backyardchickens.com/newsearch?search=vaccines

    I would say that you have missed the window for Mareks vaccination (should be done on the first day of hatch), so don't worry about that one.

    You may find these links interesting:

    G’Day from down under tomanyusername [​IMG] Welcome!

    As you have already received links to some great starting points, I will just wish you all the best.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]
