Q: Why don't you offer vaccinations for bantams?


The reason we don't offer vaccinations for bantams is that the vaccine is often ineffective for them because the birds are so tiny that it is too easy to administer incorrectly (to stick the needle through two layers of skin and simply miss the subdermal injection). This would make the bantam vulnerable to infection, even though the customer has chosen to vaccinate and has actually paid for a vaccination. It would be awful for a customer to believe his or her birds were safe, and then to find out otherwise in such a horrific way. We don't want our customers to risk that.

In addition, vaccinating bantams, because they're so tiny, can sometimes cause paralysis (and thus death). This is just not an acceptable risk to us. We love chickens too much.
