    So I know that all my chickens are healthy. I take really good care of them and keep them clean. I am giving my 5 Americaunas away to Ninjapoodles , as I know they lost hers and her daughter missed them so much. So how long should she keep them seperate and how far away from each other should they be?

    About 30 days is what most say, but I am not sure of the distance

    30 days is what everyone says just to be on the safe side. As far as distance I am not really sure. I would keep them as far away as feasiably possible.

    Keep them far enough away they do not breathe the same air.
