Marek's vaccination must be given to baby chicks at 1 day of age for the best results which is conveniently how old they are when Feather Lover Farms ships them each week.

What is Marek's Disease?

Marek's Disease is highly contagious very common chicken disease affecting many backyard chickens in the US. It is characterized by lesions affecting the nervous system, organs, and other tissues and commonly causes paralysis and fatality in chickens. Young chickens between 2-4 months of age are the most susceptible. There is no treatment for Marek's once the birds are infected and display the symptoms. Vaccination for Marek's is not 100% guarantee that your chicks will not get Marek's or display symptoms but it is usually an effective vaccine. Chicks are vaccinated as day-olds because it gives them the best chance of building the immunity to prevent future symptoms of Marek's. Feather Lover Farms vaccinates all of our own breeding stock and strongly feel that you should do the same. Having us vaccinate your chicks for Marek's greatly reduces the chance of your chicks getting Marek's and is a responsible step in good poultry management. Don't take any chances when you order your valuable rare, exotic or show quality baby chicks from our farm. We highly recommend you purchase our vaccination service for your day-old chicks.
