Last week at our local pumpkin festival, the chicks in the petting zoo were for sale. The breeder informed me that he would be bringing some hens this weekend to sell. I have chicks that are 13 weeks old and I am dying for some eggs. I am seriously considering going back today and getting some hens. Do you think this would be a bad idea? I don't really have a separate coop to quarantine them in, so i would have to rig something up. Do you think a large dog house in a small fenced in area would work OK temporarily for 2-3 chickens until I know they are disease free? Or should I just be patient and not do this?
