    We got a new rooster about 2 weeks ago. He came from a nice clean home but I still put him up in his own little home for the 4 weeks quarantine to make sure he doesnt' have anything. We let the ladies out to roam the yard while we were outside working. They must have heard him because they ended up at the opposite end of out property where Mister Rooster was being housed. When we caught them they were right up next to his fencing of his coop and he was right there on the other side. So is quarantine time over or do I play it safe and continue with the next two weeks?

    I would continue it. Yes, they came in contact with him, but if you can keep them away from that area, they are still in less danger than if he lived with them all the time. I know how hard it is to keep a new bird in quarantine. I hate quarantining, but i really encourage you to finish it out and watch him closely for any kind of symptoms.
