    I'm thinking of ordering some started pullets (5) from Meyer. I got my chicks from there and am very pleased with them. So my question is, do I need to quarantine them for 4 weeks?

    Thanks!

    I am no expert but from what I have read on here you should always quarantine new chickens.

    You should always quarantine any new birds. Just so you are aware, and don't freak out when you get them, I think all hatchery started pullets are debeaked.
