    I am planning on getting four new pullets at an upcoming swap and am curious to know what size coop/run I should make for them during their 30 day quarantine? I am planning on building something easy/as small as possible for this, and something that can be moved, after the quarantine period, beside my current run and coop to let the chickens become somewhat familiar with each other before doing a full introduction.

    Any other suggestions for a quarantine space would be appreciated as well. Thanks!

    Ideally, they should have a smuch space per chicken a your present flock has.
