    We are getting ready to vaccinate for fowl pox today and I have 2 questions. Can I use the same needle or does each bird get it's own needle? Also at what age is it safe to do this? And if it's safe to do this as babies do I use the same dosage that I would an adult?
    Thanks!!

    The vaccine I know about is just given with a stabber, which is included in the package. The same stabber is used on all birds in the wing web. And the dose is not really a dose at all, just a stabber coated in the vaccine. Your vaccine should have all this info on the insert in the vial box regardless. Check the insert and it should answer any and all questions.

    Good luck.
