    Hi guys!
    Three weeks ago, I bought four EE chicks and 15 poults. Now that the weather is nice for the babies, I was thinking about getting them outside this week. The only thing thats stopping me is the mosquitoes... My existing flock has only been vaccinated for fowl pox, but my local feedstore told me that the manufacturer hasn't distributed poxine and they might not get any for a couple of weeks. I haven't seen any poxine vaccines available on the internet (for a decent price at least), BUT they do have the AE-Poxine vaccine available at Jeffers. If I was to get the AE-Poxine vaccine does that mean I would have to treat my existing flock for AE as well? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!
