Okay, so hubby and I want to bring in a rooster for our six chickens who are scared to be out in the yard without one of us with them. But we are having a debate over isolating the rooster first. He works with a lot of guys who own chickens, and none of them isolate, and none have ever had problems. One coworker said the only time he's known someone to isolate is when the chicken is being rescued from a bigAg facility. Sooo... show of hands - who here actually isolates new birds every time? What is your procedure? If we choose not to isolate, is there anything that can be done beforehand to reduce the risk to our girls?
