I purchased a chick assortment from a local breeder this past Spring. Their chickens are vaccinated, the chicks are not. We never vaccinated them and other than a failure to thrive chick and one we had to put down due to injury, they're all big and healthy. My dilemma is, I'd like to purchase some sexed chicks from a major hatchery and I'm not sure whether I should get them vaccinated or not. And since I'm new at this, I'm sure there are factors I might not be considering. Our chickens are almost completely free-range except for an occasional bit of organic feed if I need to get them in the coop for a reason. They get the some ACV in their water about every other week. Our farm hasn't had any other poultry on it in probably over 70 years, though we have a ton of wild birds. There are no chickens in our immediate area (within at least a 1/2 mile of us). I'm trying to raise them as naturally as I can, in case that matters. I appreciate the help!
