    Can you vaccinate Bantams for Marek's? We had Marek's on our property, and it killed off most of our chickens. (So sad!!!!) I was really attached to my little Bantam rooster (who was not vaccinated). Things seem so lonely without him...I'm really wanting to get a new baby Bantam rooster, but know that I will have the risk of Marek's here permanently now. I've had all other incoming chicks vaccinated, but I haven't been able to find solid information as to whether or not I could vaccinate a Bantam at some point.

    Yes you can, just exactly like large fowl, and it should be done when they are a day or two old.
