Vaccination Schedule for Broilers and Turkeys

Vaccination is very important in livestock production, especially in poultry production. Poultry farmers should vaccinate their flock (broiler, pullets, layers, turkeys, duck, geese, etc.) against diseases to avoid losing them to these diseases and prevent high financial loss.

Vaccination, in addition to proper farm hygiene and sanitation practice, enables you as a farmer to prevent diseases from taking over your flock, allowing you to get the best out of your animals and also producing wholesome or safe meat for human consumption.

The vaccination schedule for both backyard and commercial broiler chickens and Turkeys is as follows:

    • After rabbits have been weaned, you don’t need to give them any medication. However, you can place them on multivitamins if necessary to reduce the weaning stress effect.
