    Thought this might be the best board to ask this on.

    If I do not get all my birds from the same breeder, what's the best way for me to house them??

    I didn't take that into account when building my coop and now I'm in a bit of a panic! If they are all the same age, can I put them in together right away, or do I need to keep them apart? For how long?

    With any luck I'll be able to find someone with the number and types of birds I want.

    Boy do I feel like a dork.

    If your birds come from different places you should quarantine them for 30 days just in case they are sick. You don't want the birds transferring diseases to your other birds.
