    Hopefully I posted this in the right spot, if not please feel free to move. [​IMG]

    Question on everyone's set-up for new arrivals. How do you do it, where do you keep them while under quarantine.

    I don't have a separate pen and need ideas. [​IMG]

    Thanks!

    Dog crates seem to be what I run across most, put in a garage or basement.

    I got some new ones too - we just took some of our chicken wire and wood and made a huge crate to put them in and have them in our basement-made a roost with leftover wood-less expensive than dog crates and you can make it any size you want-we even have a heat lamp hooked up and there water and feeder is in it. They seem happy and maybe a little spoiled !!!!

    I'm in the same boat with that. I don't know where to keep them since I know my dad would never go for having them in the garage and putting them outside kinda defeats the purpose since my current flock is free range.
