    On raising chicks what vaccination should I vaccinate them to prevent future diseases. Should I be giving them a certain brand vitamin to help build their immune system any suggestions???

    I would find out what is prevalent in your area, and then yes I would vaccinate for those.

    I vaccinated for Mareks...mainly because their parents were. There's no one anywhere close that has chickens so don't know if it's in my area or not. But rather than taking a chance and the vaccine was cheap.....so did it. And plan on it for this new batch too.
