    i have placed an order with Meyers Hatchery for my very first chicks in April. They do not vaccinate. Can I vaccinate them when they arrive at 2-3 days old and where do I get the vaccine? I am betting there is a You Tube video on how to vaccinate?
    Thank you.

    Here's a good article on vaccinating:

    http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/ps030

    From reading on here I'd say most small flock owners do not vaccinate. I haven't. They are generally only sold in large quantities, like 1000 doses, too.

    Besides the hatcheries, Jeffers Livestock and First State Vet supply are well known sources. Some things can be bought on Amazon as well.
