    Hi guys! I have three chicks that I picked up on Monday from a very reputable farm in town. I was realizing this morning that three chickens is not enough, as I have three egg loving children. I am wanting to purchase a few more. Do I need to quarantine them? I would be buying from the same farm, and they would be the same age, which is two weeks. Like I said, I have had my current chicks for less than five days, and would be picking these new chicks up Monday.

    Since they all came from the same place, I'd just put the new ones right in with the present three. You're smart to be cautious, though.
