We are looking at getting 1 or 2 new chickens from a nearby woman who is looking to pare down her flock. About the same age as mine, maybe a bit younger. Mine are about 6 months old, hers are about 4 months. We do not have a good setup to separate the chickens though we might be able to block off a portion of the run for a while. Still wouldn't be ideal as it isn't that big (my chickens free range during the day so the run isn't huge). I was thinking of taking them to the vet right after we get them and have them checked out for general health. I'm not sure what to look for when I visit her place besides obvious neglect or really sickly looking chickens. I know you are supposed to quarantine for 30 days but I just don't see how we can do that with our space & set up. We don't have a garage, or any sort of fenced off area that would be secure. We don't even have an extra bedroom. And even if we blocked off a portion of the run, they could still have contact through the wire. I'm concerned - any thoughts?
