I currently have 14, 5 week old chicks. My neighbor down the road has had some major problems with his hens getting eaten by foxes lately (his flock went from around 30 to 3 in a matter of weeks, they were picking them off two and three at a time)... Anyway, he ordered some ready to lay pullets from a place in CT, 15 for him and 5 for another neighbor who has since changed his mind. Since he knew that my chicks won't be laying for quite some time he came over and offered to sell me the extra 5 birds that his neighbor turned down. It's a win-win because I have been buying eggs from him and it'll give us some of our own eggs alot sooner, plus it gets a home for these 5 birds he's ordered... Soooo, do I quarentine these new girls when they come? How long? Thankies!
