Hi, I am a bit late in asking (my chicks are currently in the mail right now heading this way) but was curious if chicken owners out here vaccinate small flocks against Marek's and if medicated or non medicated chick starter is preferred. I had chickens before when I lived in Wyoming, and no one vaccinated, but everyone used medicated chick feed for coccidia. Now that I am newly located in lovely Benton County,Oregon I just realized I should have asked around before ordering my chicks. Any other area specific health issues (worms, disease) that is common here? Thanks for any input!
