As you all probably know by now, I have my first group of 3 chicks (what do you call that?) right now, just picked up Tuesday. Next Tuesday I will be picking up three more chicks from the same hatchery, they will be day-olds (I just HAD to have Dominiques but there weren't any available on my original pick up date). I hope to be able to integrate the newbies with the girls I have now. I understand I will have to take it slow and watch everyone. I have a screen that I can use to separate the brooder. My question is, do I need to quarantine the new chicks? Or no, because they are all babies and they all came from the same hatchery?
