    The only method that I know of is buying the mmedicated chick starter feed, if there is another way then I want to know about it.

    Vaccinations are either given subcutaneously, ocularly, orally, or in the water. They're all very easy to do.

    I'd recommend using the Marek's Disease vaccine, other thant that, don't vaccinate for a disease unless you have a problem with the disease (most vaccines leave the bird as a carrier).
