Question on Quarantining

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Would quarantining still be necessary if I purchase more chickens from my original source?  He breeds from a closed flock.

 

Just trying to increase my chicken information.

I would definitely quarantine for at least two to three weeks, even if you get them from the same source. The breeder could have brought in a new chicken at some point that introduced a new pathogen between now and your last visit.

Then said He unto them,

“But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it

and likewise his pack; and he that hath no sword,

let him sell his garment and buy one."
