but do you have to quarantine baby chicks from the flock. This year we will be getting a new shipment day olds from Cackle again. But I want to brood them out in the barn. But my year old flock is out there and I dont want to cause any problems. I have enough room out in the coop to set up the table top brooder, that way I dont have to deal with the dust and mess in my house again. The adult flock would be in the same room as the babies but they wouldnt have access to them. This is what I used last year and want to use it again because it worked so well.
