    This just came up and I ended up getting some chicks at the last minute, today a friend of mine is vaccinating for Mareks. I am wondering if 9 days is too old for the chicks to be vaccinated?

    If you don't think they have been exposed yet, then go ahead and vaccinate.

    I brought them in my bedroom last night with an air cleaner on. In the other part of my house there was a sick chicken of (I think) mareks a couple months ago.
