    If I get chicks, From Chickens For Backyard's, Should I get the Marek's Vaccine shot?Its only $1.25 Per Chick so if I have to do it, it's not a problem.

    I always have either vaccinated my own or bought them vaccinated. Once you get Marek's on your property it's a long process before its gone, if it ever goes away that is

    We got chicks from Chickens For Backyards, I highly recommend them, all my chicks arrived happy and heathy they also gave me an extra chick, I think it is their policy. I would probably get your chicks vaccinated. If it does not cost much. Better safe than sorry.

    Alright!If I do, haven't decided(long debate, long story)I will get 8-9, Plus I messages one of the Workers, they said just put a message that says DO NOT send ANY extras, if you don't want them.
