    I do it for a week to 10 days. That may be too long according to some, but I feel it's a good time period. You should notice any problems in that time. Watch for poop, coloring of comb and waddles, is she talking (sign of contentment) on the new one.

    The longer the better is always the safest way.

    I quarantine for 30 days just to be sure...

    And its not about the size of your flock, its about the amount of happiness they bring you.
