    I have a set of eggs in the incubator, first batch since I had a gal die of Marek's this past spring. I plan on vaccinating these chicks because they will most undoubtedly be exposed.

    I've found different types of vaccines though, and I'm confused as to which ones would be the best for my flock since they will be exposed at some point.

    Here are some links I've found, and I'm open to other suggestions. Chicks are due to hatch in two weeks, so I need to get it set up before hatch day. Thanks!!


    Link one: says it's FR-6?

    Link two: serotyp 3, live virus?
