    Okay Here is my question. I just picked up 6 hens from someone on Freecycle in my area. He hatched them himself . Can I give them all their shots now or is it too late for that. They are about 18 months and lying eggs. I do not plan on puting them into the flock, they are very thin and look like they are just starting or finishing a molt. Any help will be great. Thanks

    Which shots? Some, like Mareks need to be done at hatch, but others can wait. It would help if you would specify which shots you were looking at doing.
