I brought two new girls home yesterday and put them in my temporary run. They were supposed to be in there for a few weeks but managed to break out while I was gone. (I've never had a hen get out of it before) I found all the hens mixed together, foraging and happy as could be. I know the breeder I purchased them from just got over a "cold" issue with some of her other birds so this quarantine was very important. In fact I waited a few weeks to get them because of it. (These hens were never sick, it was some new chicks she brought in. But they were on the same property) They're all hiding under bushes where I can't separate them. Do I still gather them up tonight and put them back in the fixed run. Or is it a lost cause after a day hanging out together? All this waiting to pick them up and then separating them and then this happens I hate to separate them if it's too late any way, since they are getting along so well. It may not be so easy next time. But I don't want to rick sickness in my flock if I can help it.
