    I have several people asking me to hatch them some chicks. Do I need to vacinate them? How?
    If I start them on Medicated Chick Starter is that enough? What else should I be doing?
    Thank you for your input.

    I don't vaccinate chicks that I'm selling. That's just me. I start everything on medicated chick starter, and if the people that buy them choose to feed them differently, that's up to them. [​IMG]

    I don't vaccinate and for the past 2 years I haven't used any medicated feed. Just they way I do things. Other people will only feed medicated, or vaccinated every chicks for mareks, etc.
