I am getting a new chick tomorrow of about 6 weeks old. I am swapping her for a roo that was suppose to be a hen. She will be quarantined on my deck for 30 days because I just don't trust the farm she is coming from. I have 2 other 6 week old chicks. Should I put one or two with her so that she's not lonely over the 30 days? I know it would be a sacrifice but I know chickens are social. I am not sure what 30 days in quarantine alone would do to personality or am I being silly.
