I'm a brand new chicken mommy. My original idea was to get my good laying hens from one source and my ornamental hens from another since I couldn't find one source for all the breeds I wanted. I found pullets from two sources all about the same age. I wanted to do this the same day so they would all be new and adjust together. Well that didn't happen. I was able to get my 8 good layers - they are 10 week old pullets - 4 days ago but I want to add 2 silkies and 1 or 2 sizzles that I can pick up tomorrow from another source. After reading all the posts, I'm not sure that is a good idea. Since it's only been 4 days they're probably still adjusting and could just work it out or it could be a total disaster if I don't quarantine etc.... What do you think? The original 8 are still nervous about coming out of the coop into the run so maybe they wouldn't realize there were new ones until bedtime. I really want the silkies and sizzles but i'm not sure if it's worth it. Thanks!
