Hi,
We pick up our first new chicks on Father's Day!!
We did not tell them to vaccinate them and are now debating whether that was a good idea or not. What is everyone's opinion on this topic? Has anyone had a brood not vaccinated and lost a bunch?

I can still call the company today or tomorrow and ask them to vaccinate them. Just wanted to see what you experienced chicken people thought should be done!!

Thanks for your help!
