I order my chicks from the same hatchery every year, and when I was a newbie, I had no idea what Marek's disease was. So, when I was prompted at checkout to chose to vaccinate my chicks against Marek's Disease, I had a lot of research to do.
After seeing numerous photos of chicks with Mareks, I made the decision to vaccinate all of my new chicks against this disease. I have never had a single chick contract the disease in my 15+ years of raising chickens.
The hatchery does it for me, and it is a small fee per chick. Since the disease is extremely contagious, I opt for the vaccine to protect my entire flock. No regrets!
