    I know this is not very common practice, other than cost is there a specific reason behind why people don't vaccinate traditional/purebreeds ?

    Would it be perfectly alright to keep unvaccinated free ranged where we have a lot of wild birds coming in or would the risk of disease/mortality be significantly higher? Sorry about all these questions, we've only ever kept hybrids so I've never really had to think about this, but now we're considering getting purebreeds/traditional breeds it would be nice to know.
