I posted this in the quarantine thread but then thought that perhaps it belongs here. Apologies if I am getting it wrong... I am quarantining two 8 week old chicks I got today. I examined them for a good amount of time and couldn't see any lice or mites - vents, eyes, noses, legs all look good BUT they were in a large free range flock and were at the bottom of the pecking order and that shows a little. Not a lot, but they aren't in the pristine condition that my other birds were when I got them. Some pecked tail feathers and smaller than what I think they should probably be at this age. (They were just so friendly to my daughter...and I think they will eventually be very pretty birds) They are being quarantined in an area my chickens never go, I'm terrible at distances but I would guess 30-40 feet from their coop? I could move them further but that would put them into the deep woods where they would be more likely to be attacked and I can't keep as good an eye on them. Beyond keeping them quarantined and practicing biosecurity, I'm wondering what I should do proactively for their health - should I give them a DE bath? front-line? de-worm them? I don't want to stress them out but it seems like some of these things would be wise. I'm just not sure how to do it for this age.
