    I did NOT get any vaccines for my last batch (now 6 weeks old). Do I need to get the new chicks vaccinated? Or, will the time I brood the new ones in the house (about 3 weeks) be long enough to make everybody safe? Once the new chicks are big enough, they'll be going in to the coop with the bigger chickies, but seperated by a divider (dont know quite how I'm gonna do that yet...) until everyone is even sized or the seem to get along some.

    Anything else I should do before I order the new chicks? They hatch today, so I'm placing my order today and they'll be here hopefully tomorrow or Thursday. So I need to know! lol
