    If you are asking about vaccinations, many people get their chickens vaccinated for Mareks disease, some for coccidiosis. Later some will get fowl pox vaccines if it you live in a warm environment with mosquitos. There are others such as for respiratory diseases such as MG, coryza, ILT, and IB. Some hatcheries such as Murray McMurray have a list of vaccines available on their website. I will only get mine vaccinated for Mareks if they are from a hatchery--it only costs a dollar or less, and it is a very devastating disease that will infect and other chickens you get.

    Marek's Disease and Coccidiiosis are probably the two most common vaccinations that chicks get.

    Well, chicks don't always get vaccinations/shots. But many people have them vaccinated for Marek's Disease, Coccidiosis, and/or a respiratory disease like Newcastle, Bronchitis, or Infectious Larayngotracheitis. Fowl Pox is another vaccine that can be given to older birds, too.
