    I have 3 8 months old pullets and 2 pullets that are about 6 months old. the older ones are not vaccinated. I heard that if you get chicks that are vaccinated they can give the disease to older chickens that are not vaccinated. when I got my second batch of chicks however, I got them vaccinated and the other chickens were fine. Should I get my new chicks vaccinated against mareks or not?
