    How close in proximity can I keep birds from different breeders?
    Also, how long should I quarantine them before introducing to existing flock?

    The quarantine should last 45 days. As far as distance goes, I would keep the birds as far from the existing flock as possible. Wind can be a huge factor in spreading illness. Best of luck.
