We are coming in to 6 new girls for our flock. Complete stranger chickens. Not ones from a friend... not ones we know an accurate ANY history on. So far, the current *owner* THINKS they are around 2 years old. Tomorrow I will post pics so, hopefully, their ages and breeds can be fully determined. But I digress. As these are chicks that haven't been on my homestead, I already know to quarantine. We are getting a site ready for them, where they and our current flock can eyeball each other without coming into contact. As I know none of their history, I have a few questions: 1. Should I go ahead and douse them with VetRX, electrolytes, probiotics, prebiotics, Nutra Drench, dewormer, Corid, pre-treat for mites, epsom salt baths, any combination thereof? I know they've been in a very small, contained space... but not taken care of. 2. I'm thinking I should quarantine for at least 8 weeks. Is that good? Longer? Shorter? 3. Current *owner* says they are laying eggs. I have no plans on eating their eggs until they would be *safe*... how long would that be? I doubt seriously these hens have been treated for fleas/mites, or given anything kind of vet treatment, so I'm sure no antibiotics or frontline or anything have been used on or in them. 4. When doing their initial exam, what should I look at and look for? ANY suggestions would be helpful at this point, as this will be my oldest flock ever.
