    I purchased 8 chicks from our local feed store. They were already a few days old. They were not vaccinated for Mareks. I know it should be done right away. Can I vaccinate them now, or is it too late. The chicks I ordered from Ideal were vaccinated, BTW.

    That's what I as afraid of. I imagine that feed stores, who order 100s at a time don't want to pay for shots. I thought it was well worth it for my small order of 20 to have it done. Thanks.
