A. Marek’s Disease is a widespread disease affecting domestic chickens in all sections of the world.
It is characterized by lesions affecting the nervous system, organs, and other tissues. Young chickens under 16 weeks of age are most susceptible.
There is no treatment for Marek’s once the birds are infected.
Chicks must be vaccinated as close to the time of hatch as possible for the vaccine to be effective. We vaccinate all of our own breeding stock and strongly feel that you should do the same if Marek’s Disease is in your area.
Vaccinating your birds for Marek’s is another appropriate step in strong poultry management.
