    Ok my sister has my brain rumbling around..

    She said the hens she has that were hatched from private owners seem to die much quicker than her birds that were hatchery and vaccinated. She has not detected illness in the flock before on a couple of occasions going out and finding a hen dead, and they have all been private owner non vaccinated. She keeps urging me to vaccinate my birds. Herein lye's the question.

    Has anyone else noticed this with their birds?

    What are they vaccinated for that seems to be increasing their longevity?

    What vaccinations are they commonly using?

    If you are NPIP certified is there certain things that you must immunize for?

    How many of you vaccinate and what do you vaccinate regularly for and how often?

    I hope ya'll can help me find the answers to the questions.
