I have done a lot of research about the benefits of quarantining. I am definitely not a "take the easy way out" kinda gal, as I have recently quarantined 3 new 6-month hens (purchased a local farmer) from my seven 4 month olds with success. However, I have ordered for pick up 2 EE started pullets (16-20 weeks old) from Meyer Hatchery for April 27th pick up. Do I need to quaarantine them from my 4 and 6 month olds that are out in the coop? I guess I was assumiing, coming from a reputable hatchery, that they would be assured of healthiness. Am I wrong? Certainly don't want to jeopardize my current 9. I realize "better safe than sorry", but also don't want to unduly stress them in quarantine either. Just not sure what I should plan for, come April 27th!
