    You don't even have to explain, I'd just like to know what the general consensus is.

    Looking forward to seeing the responses!! [​IMG]

    We're still learning, so I don't know if this is correct, but I say Nay for us. We have a fairly small flock.

    If that doesn't sound right, someone let me know...

    Quote:I don't think that there is a right answer, honestly I think it is personal and varies from person to person. That's why Iwas interested in getting replies to see what the overall average is.

    With few exceptions I am not inclined to vaccinate, however I don't think that people who choose them are "bad" or "wrong" or even misinformed. I just think it's a choice. Thjere are a few illnesses like Mareks or infectious coryzia (sp?) that frighten me however I know that I am uncomrfortable because I am uninformed so I plan to learn more.

    anyway...short answer here is: nay

    When you go to the doctor and he says "I'm gonna have to give you a small shot" ,do you ever say NO Doc if they don't have a pill I'd rather die!?

    We've had chicks from hatcheries vaccinated for Marek's at the suggestion of our vet. But we don't vaccinate our farm egg hatchlings.
