    I would like to be able to vacciate against Marks when you hatch eggs!!

    can anyone tell me how or were I would purchase?

    I once heard about a hatchery giving some kind of tablet (you put in water) for marks when you bought eggs [​IMG]

    but I can't remember were I even heard it:|

    any info would help

    above link is an excellent source for most everything needed for poultry. The folks are great to deal with and if you have questions they are very quick to respond.

    Mareks is a sub-q injection. There is a wafer involved that is disolved and then a very small amount is injected just under the skin. I don't have the link but Shilala Poultry gives a very good description on how to do it.

    I don't innoculate so I can't give much more info then this.
