    I just started Raising Silkies this Sping! I have 2 older pullets in my Chicken coop and 6 chicks in my brooder. I want to get another Bantam Breed. I am thinking about orpingtons or cochins. How does everyone Quarantine their new chickens? I am trying to think of the best way possible. Does anyone just use a chicken tractor for quarantining?
    Please let me know what you do. Any Advice would be great! Thanks!!! [​IMG]
