    We have three young hens who are about four months old. They are not producing eggs yet but are pretty good (adult) size. We have the opportunity to get four more hens who are just over a year old and are producing. Are there any concerns or things we should watch out for when combining them? Should we quarantine the new hens? What are some health concerns to look out for? We don't want our current babies to get sick! Thanks to everyone for advice! -Jeff and Becca
