    Food, water and fresh air are the best medicines for chickens. I wouldn't have introduced them right away though. It's always a good idea to quarantine any new birds for a minimum of 30 days.

    Were they vaccinated for Marek's and Newcastle? Vaccination isn't a guarantee but sure eliminates alot.
