    Hoping someone can please offer their expertise! I recently had hatch of chicks that I incubated. There was 1 egg left and I was sure it was not going to hatch but left it in the incubator just in case. Well, 2 days after the other chicks hatched, this chick is now hatching, The problem....I have given the Marek's vaccine to the other chicks but don't have the vaccine for this one. Can I leave it in the incubator for a day until I get the vaccine on Monday or can I put it in with the other chicks that ARE vaccinated?

    Better safe than sorry. Keep it quarantined till its been given the vaccine. Good luck.
