    Do you vaccinate if your just a back yard chickener...and if so how, where do I get the vaccinations...as well as is there a certain age that is to late to do it, and does it put them at any risks? I have not vaccinated any of my 12, 4 are a year old others are 3months

    I've never had any of my birds vaccinated. It's a personal choice whether you do or dont. If you decide to vaccinate, contact your local extension office or your state department of agriculture to find out what poultry diseases are prevelent in your area and vaccinate accordingly if you wish. Jefferslivestock.com sells various vaccines for poultry.
    Here's a couple of links for you to read about vaccinating:
