The only vaccine suggested for small flocks of chickens is the Marek's vaccine which is given in the hatchery either before or just after hatching. Giving the vaccine to juvenile or adult birds is of little value. The only other may be ILT vaccine but used only rarely, and only when a break of disease occurs. It should not be considered routine.

There are no other routine vaccines recommended for backyard flocks of chickens.
