    I'm ordering chicks. Do they need to be vaccinated?

    I had mine vaccinated for Mereks. I chose to feed them medicated chick starter for the coceodesis (sp) and it has worked well. I like to do things natural, but that was my first time ever with chicks and I wanted as few problems as possible.

    Quote:I also vaccinate mine for Mareks. I had a couple die of Markes a couple of years ago. It is the worst, and very sad. I don't want any of mine to die like that again if I can help it.

    I also feed the chicks medicated chick starter. Like Urbanfarmer, this has worked very well for my beautiful flock.
