    So when my chicks hatch out Im giving them a Mereks shot. Im also giving my 7 adult chickens the Mereks shots as well. What I would like to do since I have them caught is give them a wormer too. Do you think this would be to much of a shock for them or just knock it out at once?

    No need to worm your chicks. I recommend that you proceed with the Marek's vaccinations first, then wait awhile before worming. Here's a link regarding vaccinating your flock and vaccine failure, for your info:
