Describe your housing. Can it be subdivided?

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

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!!!

I read the article and for quarantining could i just put up a fence in between the new and the old chickens or would i have to do more, Such as have them out of sight of each other?

Quarantine separation is much different than integration separation.

 

Consider medical quarantine:

BYC Medical Quarantine Article

Poultry Biosecurity

BYC 'medical quarantine' search

These new chickens have been with my uncles dad for 9 weeks and they say that they have been very healthy. None have died of disease or gotten sick.
