Long time reader, first time poster here. I am considering adopting a mature hen from a friend who needs to give her up, and I am wondering what kind of questions you recommend asking. So far I have: - What are her age, breed, laying habits - Any history of illness/medication - Is her coop currently heated - Did you raise her from a baby I currently have six pullets about 8 months old. Their coop is 6x10', and they don't have an enclosed run at the moment but they do free range during the afternoon in our fenced (urban) backyard. Their old (much smaller) coop and tiny enclosed run is still set up in our yard, so that could be a good place to quarantine the newcomer if needed (for how long?) Give me all your advice or links to any discussions similar to this. I searched for questions like mine but couldn't find anything. Thank you!
