My DIL bought three Marek's vaccinated juvenile chicks from a well-known mid-western hatchery this past June. By 7 months of age they had all died from Marek's, two of them with tumors. While Marek's vaccine doesn't keep chickens from getting Marek's it is supposedly rare for tumor development. So, either they weren't vaccinated like she was told, the vaccine didn't take or maybe the vaccine just doesn't work for anything anymore. The necropsies were done at the ISU Veterinary lab. Based on this experience I guess I would wonder, "Why bother?"
