    I am new to raising chicks, and I was wondering if it was necessary to quarantine chicks from different hatcheries. I am getting day-old chicks from two different hatcheries and don't want to risk anything. Is there much risk in putting them all in the same brooder right away? I got my first batch yesterday and my next in a couple of days.
