I came home to find 2 neighbor dogs in my yard. They had killed 2 chickens and bit one of the rabbits. Plus did a lot of damage to the rabbit cages. The dog owner spoke to a local chicken hobby farmer who states we can have 2 of his chickens and there is no need to quarantine them "they can go straight into our flock and they will start laying eggs that day." I have seen the condition of his small chicken operation and don't feel comfortable with his chickens coming to my home. I have done a lot of research and read a lot of books before raising our own chickens. I have read many recommendations on the need to quarantine and why. I feel comfortable to say this is what I would do before bringing more chickens into my flock. I would like to hear from others how they feel about bringing new chickens into there flock? Do you quarantine or not?
