In the Brooder
- May 20, 2015
Iam looking forward to our new additions to our animal family. Iam wondering if we need to do any vaccinations and if so when. Thank you in advance for any information
We are looking into getting Barred rocks or Welsummer from a privare breeder, so I should ask if those vaccinations were given? Do they have to be given every year? Thanks for the infoWelcome to BYC!
When we ordered our last batch of chicks, we requested they do the coccidiosis and a mereks vaccinations. One reason we asked the hatchery to do the vaccinations was because they need to be done within 1-3 days (I believe) of hatching. And I didn't want to try doing it on such a small animal (I've given injections to dogs & horses before but not tiny chicks).
What breeds of chickens are you getting? Share some photos with us if you would like, those are always fun to see.
Good luck to you with your new flock!
