    I'm hatching chicks for the first time. They are set to hatch on Tuesday. It *just* occurred to me that I should probably vaccinate them for Marek's. Help?

    Have you had problems with Marek's in your flock? If so, Jeffers carries the vaccine. $30 for a 1000 dose bottle.

    If you have not had problems I wouldn't bother. I do not vaccinate.

    No, I have never had an issue with Marek's. But, I don't want one either!
