    Hi All,
    I plan on going to a sale in February. If I would buy birds from more than one buyer do I have to quarantine them all seperately? Can they be in the same cage or shed but with a divider between them or do they have to be in completely separate areas (no connecting walls)? Thanks.

    The birds will more than likely be stored in the same holding place till they sale so any birds in the facility will be exposed to whatever any bird has, if they have anything. So quarintining together when you get home shouldn't be an issue as long as you keep them away from your existing flock. [​IMG]

    Hope that makes sense [​IMG]
