    My son would like to order some chicks. The place we plan to order from offers a choice of yes or no mareks.

    What they heck is a marek?

    Google was hopelessly unhelpful!

    HI, it's a vaccination againsst a common chicken illness, merek's disease. A very good idea to have done. Hope that helps!
