    Describe your housing. Can it be subdivided?

    I read the article and for quarantining could i just put up a fence in between the new and the old chickens or would i have to do more, Such as have them out of sight of each other?

    Quarantine separation is much different than integration separation.

    Consider medical quarantine:

    These new chickens have been with my uncles dad for 9 weeks and they say that they have been very healthy. None have died of disease or gotten sick.
