Greetings, I have a mixed breed flock of nine hens... three two-year-olds and six one-year-olds. They have a great life and receive lots of loving care... the best I can provide regarding shelter, space, feed, and avian veterinary care, when needed. Except for one loss to a laying disorder in September, everything is going so smoothly, I had not planned to get chicks this year so as not to disrupt the peace (and my flock is a nice manageable size.) However, a ten-month-old blue ameracauna recently became available, and I’m considering taking her in (with a proper quarantine period, of course... I’m not sure how well I am set up for that.) Is this a bad idea? I don’t want to expose my flock to potential illnesses or parasites and bringing in a single hen sounds downright dangerous in an existing flock. Thoughts? Advice? Anecdotes? Thanks!
