Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

 

Quoting centrarchid:

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."

We "quarantined" our new pair for a week, but mostly to let them get used to the local germs and an entirely new environment. It also helped out when interacting with them, since the larger chickens weren't around to make distracting noises. If the chicks were carrying something nasty, then the original chickens would have been exposed, but not as much as they would have been if they were in adjoining areas. We didn't think communicable disease would be an issue.
