    The breeder that I got my chicks from said his chicks are naturally vaccinated. What does that mean? I am feeding them non-medicated starter. Should I change to medicated? Should I get them vaccinated? How much are the vaccinations? Which vaccination should they get? Right now they all look and are acting fine.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks, Hansen6dad!

    I have no clue what naturally vaccinated means. Maybe it is healthy so you dont do anything? [​IMG]

    I would not swicth to medicated feed, we feed ours just regular nonmedicted, and they are just fine.

    I NEVER vaccinate, if you have a clean environment, with fresh water and good food, you wont need it.

    Good luck!
