    Think you're in the wrong forum, unless this is a new game? But no. I mean any new chickens you have, you should quarantine them; keep them separate from your existing flock, for a month. That way you can tell if the new ones are healthy and make sure they are not carrying any diseases that could affect the whole flock. After that they can run together.
