    Most adds selling chickens say they have been vaccinated.

    What are the vaccinated against ?

    Vaccinations are typically given at a day old for Mareks disease. It is an option at checkout when you order through a Hatchery. But if you buy from your local TSC or grain store they typically don't have the vaccination because it affects their profits to get chicks that are vaccinated. I do not believe that any of mine are vaccinated and never had an issue.

    Quite a few folks are vaccinating for ILT and Pox now too. Does anyone still vaccinate for New Castle?
