It's probably under the driver's seat of your monaro, next to the beanie and empty packet of Winnie Reds
The idea that seeing the world is going from place to place to look at obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.

I would really appreciate any additional information you can provide. As I said, I sort of ended up with these birds accidentally but I really want to keep them healthy!

I have about 50 ducks and two geese, you don't have to do all that much, I feed them rice husk mostly

no, i don't think you need that.
sure it is a risk, but a much lower order than ND.
as to where- I don't know. except in Battambang! :-)
Generally those stores that sell day old chicks should have the vaccine- should be marked
I - 2 thermostable.
should be widely available- maybe ask a vet?
