for quarantine times how long is it? i know its a while I just cant remember if it is 30, 60, or 90 days.

I have my new chickens quarantined in my brooder for the time being and i have my momma and the babies in a large animal cage for now.

also if i have 2 different coops will the silkies go to their own coop after free ranging or will they follow my other chickens to the big coop? or should I make a tractor for the silkies?

It's how long you personally prefer. You can find recommendations of anything up to 90 days or even a year if you read around; the BYC 'conventional wisdom' is 30 days but longer isn't a terrible idea if it works for you. Depends partly on how comfy/unstressed the chickens are in their quarantine quarters. Personal choice.

Good luck, have fun,

Pat
