    I have a couple of roosters that I didn't know they were until know. I vaccinated my entire flock for fowl pox. It has been about 2 months? My question is are they safe to eat (the roosters) even though I vaccinated them ?

    Here is what is listed under precautions on the vaccine:

    Do not vaccinate within four weeks of onset of egg production or during egg production. Do not vaccinate within 21 days of slaughter.

    So it looks like you'll be fine if it has been 2 months.
